With experience, WRs are cheap to maintain because of the commonality
of parts and the purely mechanical (and well documented) fuel injection

At ten years, the MB ur-quattro is viciously expensive - over $35000
in five years.  At twenty years, I expect the RR to take over.

Anyone fancy a debate?  I've decided to attend the Area G meeting
(Alcester) tonight - I half expect some Audi bigwigs to be there.
