This and a replacement switch for the drivers side window is all it has needed.
Still have the original front brakes and shocks on the car. This did surprise the service manager.
Car does not rattle, tracks great, great MPG (~32 - 36). Pulls strong. I will buy another when this car id done. I fully expect to run this car until 250,000.
I'd call Audi right away and sell it back to them - see if they could make their second one with so few repairs
