Congrats, Nick! I haven't seen a new Avant on the road yet but several
sedans. the new styling is really growing on me. The big grille looks best
on the A4, I think.  What color did you get? I'm pretty envious of the
extra 30 horses in the 2.0T...

I am faithfully following Audi's recommendations, except for changing the
oil every 5k, not 10k after the first one. I am buying OEM filters and
have used M1 0w-40 since the first change and am saving all my receipts! 

Good luck with it.
