Bob --

Do you have any regrets that you decided to go without?  I'm at 48K on my 
'01 S4, and am mulling the idea of a warranty.  I take good care of the 
car, and so far, there have been no major issues.

I am scared that, like one of the other posters to this thread mentioned, 
my turbos could blow and then I'd have to fork out the $$$.

I looked at the extended warranty plan through AAA's Member Service 


but decided the cost was too much.  One benefit WAS that if you didn't use 
the warranty at all during the life of the warranty, you got all your $ 

Most recently, I've been looking at a warranty by autowarrantybroker.com, 
but am yet to get their full details and commit.

I've also spent quite some time looking at audiworld.com, and have found 
the following helpful links on the topic:
