Good luck getting your Audi back

I don't think I will keep my next one this long.  My old 86 5000 Avant  I 
bought with 60k and drove it to 310k.   That one started being a  money pit at 
150k.  My 200 I bought with ~65k from a guy in California  area, I have all his 
receipts, he put 13k into the car, all the right stuff. He  also paid $100 for 
oil changes, had a fat wallet.  I did shocks at 90k and  the normal scheduled 
stuff.  Had nothing unusual to 160k and by 200k  it has been one thing after 
another.  This second clutch is a mystery,  I am pretty easy on most my stuff, 
(snowmobile excluded).  My solution to  breakdowns was to by an old 740 Volvo 
for back up. 
Thanks, Pete
