Right...I'd prefer to keep my car as it was designed.  El cheapo short cut
to me - these cars deserve to be maintained properly.  Joe Blow in West
No-where, USA does not know better than the Audi Engineers.
Makes me wonder what other short cuts were taken.

I f you plan to keep the car until it dies ( a damn long time for an Audi)
then "to each his own".

I also would venture to say most folks on this list DO replace them when
they go bad.

'90 Cq - plan on selling a highly maintained CQ some day...
