    the wife's 2003 Audi A4 w/ 189k miles on it was on its last legs and needed to be replaced or have $5,000 in repairs done to it. i told her getting another VAG product was just stupid and asking for trouble. i felt like a old man and said to get something more reliable and more "sensible," but since the AWD sedan market is pretty small in the US, she of course got her way. i tried to get her to get the A3 since it comes in a diesel but that didnt happen. for some reason, Audi doesnt make a A4 TDi (its coming).....but every other model they make does (except the R8)


    blacked out the wheels, windows and front and rear Audi rings and removed the rest of them. its a helluva lot peppier then her dying 1.8t but itll still be getting a APR tune soon and some sway bars.

    LOL.
    My wife and I have been together for 23 years.
    I don't waste time trying to 'win' arguments; that energy is better spent creating obstacles to her leaving me easily.

    If you believe you're always right, do you ever really lose?

    Get use to it or get out. After 21 years I chose the get out option.
