I think they had a bad batch of turbos, and when they've failed, they've
(more or less) been replaced. That's not really unusual, and it doesn't
really seem like a given. Yes, it's happening to a lot of people, but it
seems like every one I've heard of has happened really early on (within 5 or
10k miles).

I'm not going to write off Audi just because they got a batch of bad parts.
Had these been failing electrical seat motors we wouldn't be giving it
nearly this much attention (I guess because nobody chips their seats ;).

Best regards,

2000 A6 2.7 biturbo quattro
2 turbos, 1 driver ... no limits
