	The unintended acceleration scare is also almost single-handedly
	responsible for the great deals on used Audi's.  That's one thing
	*I'm* not complaining about -- though I'm sure a lot of netters aren't
	too happy about it!

	The class-action suit was filed only with regard to the 5000 line, and
	only those with automatics. They retro-fitted shift locks on all
	the affected cars: my '85 5000ST has it, along with a warning sticker
	about pressing the brake pedal before shifting to "drive" or "reverse".
