Re: urquattro killing battery??
when i read this i put 2 and 2 together...
there have been posts in the past about critters
taking up residence in our fine german cars when
they sit unused for a while. my suspicion is
that these critters are probably running the heat,
making phone calls or listening to npr on the
radio. i would suspect that the 2a jump must have
been poker night or something.
