Ack!!  SHEER BRILLIANCE!!  Despite the ravaging effects of the
Granada Virus on this once-great list, there are still those brave
souls who will fight the oppression and stand out with stunning
good sense.  Perhaps this is the beginning of an antidote to the
Granada virus that can restore this list to its Audi-dom greatness.
Mucho condolences to those casualties that have already been Granada'd.

Anyone who is anyone that repairs Audi electrics needs to toast Kneale
for his excellent suggestion.
