	i'd have really liked an allroad.  i love them and need to tow
things.  but the A4 was too good a deal to pass up.  also, the 2006 A4
is a bit bigger than the 2000, but not like an allroad is.

	i seriously lament the demise of the allroad, and desperately hope
they create a new one instead of throwing all those eggs into their ugly
and asinine SUV.
