But, emotionally I want Audi to foot part of the bill
from a perspective of PRINCIPLE.
Yes, another $2k for K04s would be a smart choice -
but again - then it's ALL ON ME!
If my turbos did fail due to manufacturer's defect -
then I want the manufacturer on the hook too.
Yes, I'm paying retail rates (as someone said to me in
an offline email) but for those RETAIL RATES - I WANT
2001+ turbos for my $$$$ - or else I will seek legal
