[BiturboS4] RE: Second Battery

My car was a victim of the infamous "New Jersey mod" while on business in
New Jersey. (If you're reading this mailing group you little punks - you
left latents all over the trunk emptying out my stuff!)

My S4 needs to be run every 3 days or the battery drains. No lights on,
nothing else. My dealer checked the car out and gave it a clean bill of
health. Battery was fine after running. I'm thinking I will disconnect the
battery and moved my battery kit to the Audi from my older non-running
bimmer. I'm not getting stuck in a storm again with a brand new car and dead

Audi service wouldn't investigate very far. They simply blamed the NJ mod
and "damage" from the break in. Just like my rotors were "warped and blued
from excessive hard driving". :)

Did I mention that service advisor was fired?

Have a good weekend.
