Don't get too jealous.  IMO they are over-rated.  In the past
months my experiences are:
-brake pad anti-squeal spray out of stock
-2-element amber marker/ turn signal bulbs out of stock
-selection of jack stands didn't include any short enough to fit
under my coupe quattro using the stock jack
-always out of 15W50 Mobil-1 (and price higher than most anywhere
else anyhow)

I found solutions to the first 3 at the much smaller and closer
Grand Auto store near my house.  And Wall-Mart/ K-Mart/ any-mart
usually has mobil-1 for cheap(er).

Now I've got a burnt out brake light.  Guess where I _won't_
