Funny, this is a subject that I was discussing off line with an urq owner
... he was saying that having a replacement turbo sitting on the shelf
insures that the part in the car will continue to work properly.  Here we
have evidence with tires that the opposite is true ... when the replacement
arrives, the part on the car fails ... :-)

It is great to hear that everything worked out for you Kevyn!  I don't know
if it is practical for the S4 Avant, but I usually try to find a full size
spare for my cars that came with the doughnuts.  Unfortunately it is pretty
tough to find single wheels ...
