I made the prototype of the sticker in PC Paintbrush for Windows in 
about an hour, and sent it to Lee, who mailed me back with some helpful 
hints.  I'm working on an improvement of it now, with the Audi rings 
rendered better in reflective silver, the fonts cleaned up and 
sized/placed properly, and the whole sticker made with wider brush 
strokes than my original for better visibility.  I might produce a 
couple of versions of it for evaluation.  It's amazing how much the font 
affects the tone of the sticker, so I'm trying to find a good font. 
It's also hard to make an Audi ring into a good-looking "Q" that doesn't 
disrupt the balance of the thing.  It might take me a couple of days more 
though, because I'm moving right now (aargh!, Hell!) and I can't devote 
as much time to it as I would wish.  Hopefully by Saturday, or the latest 
Sunday, I'll have it worked out in good form.  The final version will be 
tasteful, distinctive, easily identifiable if you know what you're 
looking for, and I hope visually appealing as well.  If the List likes 
it, terrific!  If so, we have to think about whether Audi will let us 
make it. 

Bye for now, I probably won't be around for the next couple of days.

Best Wishes,
