I'm about to hit 69k on my RS2'ed S6-

Second clutch- just cause
Second tranny- just cause
second exhaust- just cause
second suspension- just cause
third IC design- just cause
AC compressor replaced- falied
OEM HID headlights- just cause
Third set of wheels- just cause

and I've only had the car since 43k

looks like I'm spending some unneeded money on the car. Hmmm
