While your comments are valid, there aren't all that many luxury cars
that have MP3 capability and iPod connectivity until at least MY2005.

Audi is way behind on that stuff- their Bluetooth implementation is mediocre
and was done a couple years behind the market leaders (Acura, for example).

Actually the model year changes are very informative if you're selling the
cars- those
docs. are not for public consumption, that's why they're not all that

Bouncy ride? That's weird- did your dealer forget to prep the car properly?
Did they
not remove the shipping blocks in the springs? That's a common symptom of
oversight. Does your car have air suspension- obviously there aren't such
in a car w/ air suspension? If it's air suspension, you have to prep it via
the dealership
electronic tool (don't remember the current number- 5150?).

IME, the cars are not bouncy at all- they are so soft that the 18" wheel
option really improves the overall drive quality due to the stiffer sidewall
and wider footprint.

IIRC, the trip computer is now optional- if your car is the base model, it
won't have it (does your car have wood trim?).
