Now that's pretty ridiculous... other manufacturers provide service reminders
that are run off the odometer... for example, we just got my wife a Honda CR-
V, and the service reminder (for oil changes) goes from green, to yellow, to
red, and can be reset by sticking your ignition key into a spot on the dash.
The Audi version would just piss me off; last visit to an Audi dealership for
service was the airbag recall over a year ago.  Seems like the Audi version is
revenue driven.
