I'm curious to know how hot these cars are supposed to
run.. Just purchased an '00 with 80K and was in
traffic this a.m. when the temp gauge went a tick
below 'H.'

I could feel the heat coming from the engine bay. The
a/c started to blow hot air, and I thought the car was
going to explode after 2 hours in traffic.

I've own older audis in the past (a couple of
5KTQs)and have had all kinds of fun with cooling

Although the car eventually cooled when traffic picked
up--'cooled' meant the needle was in the middle. 

The oil light also started to beep and blink, but the
oil level was fine.. when the car cooled and traffic
started moving--the beeping and blinking stopped.

What did I get myself into?!?! 

Fun car, but I know I should just give Audi my credit
card ad have them 'keep it on file!'
