I opted for a check because I'm wary of giving out routing information for my bank account since I've known someone to have money withdrawn without their consent.

I'll certainly report back on the Porterfields once I've got some miles on them.

$2K dealer price for all four corners is really cheap. I haven't heard anyone else come close to that. You...

One of the local Audi dealers in Atlanta says they can't get enough used TDI Q5s and Q7s. They can't sell them as CPO, but there is still a high demand. I'm not sure if non-CPO also means no warranty?
