It took me an hour or two of staring at the diagram to come to
terms with it. The track # was probably the biggest "oh" moment.

Given the complexity of the electrical systems (and getting
worse in the future, until we'll need to be network engineers),
why Audi and/or Bentley don't strip out and isolate the various
modules (e.g, this is the ABS circuit wiring, and that circuit
only) is beyond me. Yes, it will take more pages, but it will
save the $$$ mechanic time. Having to follow a single wire
through the maze across pages is silly. I usually re-draw just
what I need, so I know what I'm dealing with.

Happy Holidays everyone.
