Thanks Phil,  I'll call.  Sounds like a "fun challenge."  I was talking to
somebody about this recall and he had mentioned that the Audi/Bose sytem was
also in the V8, as well as offered as an upgrade to other 100/200's.
Anybody know about this.

If this is the case, our assumption on a somewhat limited number of affected
cars would seem to be in error; slightly conservative.  At least my
knowledge that is.

Oh c'mon now Brett. They may be stupid, but why assume they're complete

After sitting on significant data for something like 2-3 yrs, I guess
Audi lawyer/accountants have calculated that a few more weeks or
months won't hurt--unless it's _your_ car and/or home goes up in
flames in the meantime. Has any lister actually contacted AoA (aside
from dealer contacts) since the recall notice to determine what the
delay will be (and why)? I think we all should start making calls to
Customer Relations, since Audi just might be waiting to see some
significant "demand" start to develop before they commit money to
produce an improved amplifier board or replacement speaker.

Here's the AoA Customer Relations phone number:
