Wasn't it rather high before due to the fact that Audi had the fewest key
combinations out there?  I remember when I used to drive my 80 4k (fwd)
and with that key, I could unlock about 25% of the cars at the local Audi
dealer.  Mind you, 80's cars, not the newer cars with them fancy keys.
But still, it was interesting.  My key also worked on VWs as well.  I
could always get into my buddy's Scirocco with my 4k key, and into a Coupe
GT as well.  Funny, though, sometimes I could get in but not start them,
other times, my friend's VW key could open the door, and mine could start
it.  Ah, the good 'ol delinquent days!
