thanks, good to see you back. I'm not entirely sure yet about the tint job on A4. The skylight of the Element, however, has HuperOptik (45%, I believe) film installed to prevent passengers from being baked.

If I had a choice, I would have gone with the naturally aspirated V6 (3.2L) for its increased reliability. More $ but as far as avg mpg's go, I don't think there is a significant difference between the two motors, is there?

Hence it's an Audi this time around. I need one car to do utility and dirty work (hauling construction materials, trips to the beach - those removable back seats and ez clean rubber floors are simply perfect) while the other would take care of more sophisticated outings.
