Hahahaa! I'd also like a credit for reducing the footprint created by
preventing the environmental damage caused by scrapping old Audis, as I've
kept several alive. After all, a derelict junker has to be towed to the
scrap yard, and then there are all the emissions involved with running the
machine to shred the metal and recycle the leftovers. Not to mention all the
other associated costs (and footprint) with producing something useful from
said recycled metal and then shipping it to consumers.
