Well, I went looking in the forums mentioned, but the only things I found
were people talking about their wheels and what color the car was and how
dark were the windows tinted.

Sometimes you just want to talk to someone without all the carp that comes
along with those forums.  I have mostly given up on AudiWorld - any
intelligent question gets answered with "DooD, whrd u get da rims?"  So

Anyway, I'm glad this list is here, otherwise I might have to do something
drastic.  Like start up my own Audi web site, only this one's for adults.
