[Biturbos4] board down ?

Haven't posted in a while.  As Ti suggests - I have no major complaints.
My 2001.5 Silver Avant just went off warranty - and I finished paying
for it - in July.  Decided not to purchase any extended warranty
coverage.  I still have under 40k miles on the stock S4.  It's a keeper.
Still love driving it.  Still no major problems.  Will probably try
changing the oil myself at 40k - Amsoil synthetic as usual every 5k.

The newer Audi model that looks interesting to me is the A3 line.  I'm
wondering if there will eventually be an S3 quattro offered in the US?
Finding a nice used RS6 for a reasonable would be fun, too.

I did have an interesting minor electronic "incident" just yesterday
that seems to have self-corrected.  Fired up the car after work and the
speedometer read high by 5 to 10 mph on the short trip home.  The needle
would not settle to under 5 mph at full stop.  The problem disappeared
when I started and ran the car later yesterday evening and all seems
fine today.  Nice when things fix themselves.

Noted Keman's post re: timing belt replacement.  Sounds like this is a
job for the dealer's authorized factory service people when the time

I had my windshield replaced recently by a local shop.  They got a
little carried away with the sealant/adhesive so the interior edges look
sloppy with the excess visible all around.  I'm tempted to try trimming
it back if I can find a suitable trimming tool (some sort of right-angle
blade - perhaps a sculptor's implement or something).  Other than that,
the installation seems OK.

Cheers and happy driving.

Well, people tend to complain more than write glowing reports of daily 

So.. silence probably means a buncha people enjoying biturbo S4's
