Re: Paying the Audi-gods...big time...

I concur on using the 'Blue Ignitors' from Rapid Parts - I've put a set on
every I-5 Audi I've ever owned, back to my original box-stock '85 5ks.
Great wires.  I think I paid around $60.  Rapid Parts is also a great
company...wish they had more Audi, less VW!!!.....SLM
