	a lot like mine!  i actually had the non-red-stripe 1.8t logo
on it but had the stripe one put on when i had work done on the back.
i dunno to this day if that stipe is intended to differentiate models.
i ordered mine new, with all available options and packages including
GPS.  it's for sale now; i need a vehicle with adjustable pedals and
towing capacity for my trailer.  i'd really like a three door mercedes
g-wagen, but mileage is atrocious.  i'm looking at the nissan murano
now, though i would prefer the infinity FX45.  almost walked out of
the dealer last month with an allroad lease, but the movable pedals
were a dealbreaker.  my fiancé is 5'1" and driving the A4, an airbag
deployment would kill her.
