True, I did have a letter published in the Audi Driver Magazine back in the
Jan/Feb issue.  I actually just had somebody respond in the last week who
said they saw tell of this in a current edition of the magazine.  Wasn't
sure if he was confused on the date as well, but looks like I was the one
who didn't know.

I'll contact them again about the successful run and install.  We also have
somebody who works for the magazine who purchased one of the gears, and will
be receiveing theirs in the upcoming batch (David Harrison).  He said we'll
probably get another mention next year when they do another story on his box
fender Quattro Coupe.

Looks like we're on the map!
