Hi Brett,

The cut-outs have not returned since Christmas (for which I'm 
thankful).  My thinking at this point is to hand my favorite 
independent wrench my wallet, my credit card, my ATM card with PIN 
number and a mortgage on my home and tell him to replace every sensor 
which could conceivably be even remotely related to the problem.

The better half just ordered a new 2007 scoobie Forester w/ turbo 
engine and manual tranny.  The Legacy was NLA w/ manual tranny. No 
Audi for her.  :-(

BTW, let me be the first to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  We have 
one coming y'know.  ;-)
