Review
Safety issues are my main complaints. An accident when I was run off the road into a 4'deep drainage ditch. $30,000s worth of damage and the passengers airbag fired with no passenger in the vehicle or anything on the passengers seat. Audi claims this is "normal" I do not think so a smart interlocked air bag is not a maybe situation. The external vision has far too many blind spots from tiny mirrors, large A and C pillers. In addition the rear seat head bolsters occupy about 30% of the usable visability when looking to the rear while backing up. The most important part of the rear window is the mid point down.
Suggested Improvements
Better exterior visability. Better brakes almost 150' 60-0 is outrageous for a car this expensive. Since MY2000 there have been improvements in both front and rear brakes. 1998 has single piston calipers and a solid 245 mm disc that's 10 mm thick.
