I just found a situation where Outlook grammar-checked its to it's. Because I'm terrible with that rule, I assumed it was right and accepted the correction. Except Outlook didn't know either because it then it should be switched back.

So who knows anything about Audi Allroads?

Im looking at a 02 with only 37k... Is this something I should steer clear of?

What about a 06 A6 avant?

Run far and fast! Seriously though, they're cool but expensively unreliable.

The 2.7T is a capable motor, but maintenance is stupid expensive as the stock turbos will fail and to do a timing belt the whole front end has to come off the car. The air shocks leak and are pricey to replace, each corner has 4 control arms(!!) so replacing them is $$$$ and like any VAG cars from that area they have all sorts of electrical gremlins.

Source: My friend works primarily on VW/Audi's all day, those are a few of the things I've picked up from hanging out at his shop when I'm home at my parent's place.

EDIT: Here's Fishey's take on VW/Audi from a mechanic's POV: http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?210651-Guys-over-at-the-BMW-3-series-forum-bashing-the-S60R/page2&p=2321488#post2321488

Low miles because of the amount of time it spent getting repaired ?

In all seriousness, friend had an Allroad, couldn't sell it quick enough. Suspension costs a ton and kept having issues.

I don't even know where to start with this. As someone comments in the Youtube comment, I'm in a weird part of Youtube again...

The recommended videos at the end look like this is just the tip of the iceburg :lol: Welcome to the internet.

I'd love to hear from a dermatologist. I have a hard time believing that is a blackhead in the way we all think of one. That seems more like some sort of scabbing-gone-wrong. And I don't see how it could remain for over two decades without becoming massively swollen, infected, or some how resolved.
