[A4] new A4 in the family

I have the same problem.  In my case, the ABS Controller has failed.  At 
first it was only sometimes, now the lights are on all the time.  While 
the brake and ABS lights are on, my brakes work fine but I have no ABS 
(the wheels lock up).  The part is around $1100 I think, plus several 
hours labor to install it.  It's not worth it for me.  Since this seems 
to be becoming a more common problem maybe they'll recall this too...
