	change the oil *exactly* as per their specs.  and if you do it
yourself, *only* use oils they specify and save the receipts and other
documentation so you can prove you did it on time and with the proper
parts.  otherwise, bye bye warranty!

	i'm dead set against over changing oil.  follow the spec.  in
particular the first batch, as it's often god "break in" additives or
some such in there.

	i'm looking forward to trying the 2.0t, next spring, when the
A3 quattro finally arrives.  to me, any car that isn't AWD is useless.
i imagien the lighter car, with .2 more displacement, chipped... yum.
