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.


	hahahah :)
