Take care to observe how long the airbag's red dashlight will remain 
lighted (when you start the car) after the recall work is done. It's 
not uncommon for the airbag light to begin staying lit for an 
excessive period (much more than the normal 10 seconds) after the 
recall work is done. This should be corrected by your dealer if it 
happens, since the airbag is non-functional while the light remains 

Since your car is not under warrantee, there's probably nothing for 
which the dealer is "the appropriate place to have checked", unless 
you're comfortable with bending waaay over. You'd be well advised to 
find a competent _independent_ Audi shop in your area. I'm sure other 
listers can make suggestions.
