Mark, your car's radio shut-off (mis)behavior is a normal and
much-discussed Audi "feature". Some love it, others (like me) hate
it--especially hated it during the time when the' 91 200q Bose system
was a potential fireball (btw, make sure your "new" Audi has had the
rear-speaker recall done!!!). I've learned to live with it and even
find it useful--but very infrequently. Others--many of whom have
replaced their Bose system with aftermarket receivers and
speakers--can probably describe wiring alternatives you can do.
