Mike Rooney no longer runs Ingolstadt West, and I think the service there
has suffered for it.
Might try Wicked Motorsports in the same general area. Mike worked on my B5
S4 for years and knows his Audis. I'm sure he can handle the I5. In fact
as soon as I pick mine up it will be going there for service.
