Saw your thread on AW, what did you expect?  You totally slammed the car 
in an S4 enthusiast forum.  To me it sounds like you had more of a 
failing on the dealer/repair side than the car.  That said, an Audi (any 
Audi) is certainly not a Toyota/Lexus on the reliability index.  Sorry 
you had a bad experience (both my S4's have been completely reliable, as 
was my wife's 1.8T Passat (A4)) and hope your Lexus is everything you want.

How much for the touch up paint?
