I understand what you're saying, I can see that point of view, and so I
wasn't all that surprised when my mechanic refused to do the work on the
Jorgen rack.  My backup guy, who is also pretty good, estimated $800 for the
whole job, however, so it appears he's going to use a non-Audi part.  He's
happy, I'm happy.
