J y,

That's just plain stupid.

Wally expressed his regret that I was having problems. Note that he also
said that "statistically".

Consider the scope of this mailing list, versus the number of BiTurbo's on
the road. Now consider the scope of the Audi population in general.

Wally, I'm glad you've had 20K problem free miles. I've gone no more than 7k
miles between major, major mechanical issues and have averaged 2100 miles
between dealer repairs/visits. Statistically you can rank my car a big fat
yellow meyers lemon. I've loved nearly every mile I've driven. I also put
20k miles on the car in the first 8 months. Statistically that puts me in a
very high bracket for miles. Statistically I'm aware I'm in the minority.
I'm still upset with AoA, but I'm not naive about modern quality standards
or mechanical/engineering possibilities for error or the likelihood of being
one of 10,000 that has a serious issue. I'm not disputing windsheild wipers,
or blown turbo's.

But J Y, come on. Don't act like a post.

Happy Easter/Passover everyone.
