Yea, I agree on that vent thing.  Wow, it doesn't seem to hard to add
a button to turn everything off except outside air.  The other thing
that bothers me slightly is the non-ability to turn on air
recirculation without the compressor on.  Grrrrr.... sometimes you
drive by something stinky (think skunk roadkill) in the winter and you
can't turn off the outside air without killing everything (including
the heater!).  Who thought that up!?!?

Apart from those annoyances, I really like my A4.  :)
