Had another visit ...

This time - the new owner of an A4Q.  Early 1996 - 30k miles, 14 day
return option.  The car is shuddering on pickup in first and reverse,
and occasionally in second.  The dealer says: "That's perfectly normal
for quattros - they all do it."


And crawling underneath - there's a nice new shiny front left lower
wishbone, and the front discs have been replaced.  At 30k?

Why oh why do people spending almost $30k on a car look at the top,
left, right, front and back but NEVER underneath?

"Oooh, it's nice and shiny!  Let's buy it!"

Anyway - the stench of burning clutch is enough to kill fledgling birds
four houses away.
