[Biturbos4] Mechanics in greater Boston?

Funny you should mention that.

I was driving a friends Accord around in NYC a few weeks ago. The potholes
I was hitting, plus the metal plates, were so tall that all I could think
of was DAMN. My S4 rims would have been bent twice over. And I couldn't
find a way to avoid them, because there were people in front of me and we
were all hitting them at speed. I had no warning.

Good luck finding a decent tech. Maybe ask to see if you can talk to one
or two at a shop. Ask them some detailed questions, like how many bar do
you bleed the brakes at? (2, not 1, on an S4 with ESP). If they look like
they don't know what you're talking about, politely walk away. There's a
special audi brake bleeding machine that gets used by those-in-the-know,
and only the nerdiest techs know how to use it right.
