Don't know where you live, but we also have two very different Audi
dealers in my area that are also about 20 miles apart.  I refuse to go
to the 'bad' one, but as counterpoint, I think other people have had
reasonable experiences there.  I haven't.

The 'good' dealer isn't always perfect, but on average, the overall
experience is much more positive.

I'd be very wary of anyone who thinks these lists are nothing but bull,
sounds defensive to me.  My own observation is that these lists are made
up of above average car enthusiasts who want to know the truth, and
don't put up with any bull.
