I don't know a whole lot about this new of Audi either...I normally drive old ones, but it was time to get something a little better to haul the family! I thought I'd better check with the list to make sure I don't miss something.
BTW...the car has about 70,000 miles and I think the radiator cracked by one of the supports, as if I some debris in the road pushed it up...maybe!?
