My Maaaaan Walt & The List:
ALL "earl" changes have been performed by my local Audi dealer (where I
bought the car and where the valve cover gaskets will be replaced this
Thurs) since the day my S4 was driven off the lot with 2.5 mi on the
odometer (April 2000).
The car has a 11/99 build date. This is the first MAJOR issue that I have
had with the car - other than the "pre-set station button (#1)" on that HIGH
QUALITY BOSE radio system (LOL !!!) breaking (the dealer replaced the
radio - I am sure replacement unit was re-furbished - but the dealer would
not admit this to me).
So, in a nutshell, AUDI has been the ONLY one servicing this car and any
defects ARE ON THEM!!! (even after my warranty expires - as far as I am
concerned - if it can be tied to service abuse - i.e. improper motor oil)
Once I start making mods (as I plan to do) then I am S-O-L (and I know that)
