It was a 96, basically the stock German (Euro) set-up with changes for U.S. regulations.

The bushing problems on the A4 were both upper and lower and the car only had 23k pampered miles on it!! I couldn't do the UCA and LCA repair myself as Audi will not underwrite DIY repairs, so I had to go with the dealer and I think $600 for replacing F and R pads is a complete rip-off....

Don't get me wrong, we both like the car and it is still in the garage! Certainly our experience(s) with, first, Audi and then the dealer has not exactly endeared VAG to us!! We no longer use our old dealer, rather we have found a very good Audi dealer and I cannot praise them too highly. Very nice, courteous people and a knowledgeable service department more interested in client relationships than making a quick buck. They have shown themselves to be very fair.

Our BMW, now that is another story.....exactly 0 problems with both the dealer and the car since we bought it...

I can only speak as I find...
