2004 Audi Allroad Quattro Q&A

2004 Audi Allroad Quattro Question: Questions from Formerly Spoiled Saab Sportswagon Owner :^)

1. Why oh why is there a ski bag installed in the car. Has anyone out there found a better use for that spot? 2. Cargo shades/nets. Scuze me? Does anyone know if Audi or a 3rd party manufacturer makes a hard parcel shelf and a metal gate? 3. My hope is that a ton of work went into the engine, as people seem to love Audi's and allroads, in particular. But if I took the cockpit and cargo of my 1999 Saab 95 Sportswagon and put it in the Audi allroad, well there ya' go! Hard parcel shelf, cargo gate, pockets in the front of the seats, air conditioned glove box, GOOD cup holders, better moonroof. The Audi definitely has some features, but a redesign of the interior was due for that year. I thought that they were a competitor of Saab. Perhaps not. Oh well, they were obviously better at staying in business. -
Answer 1
I had a Saab 9000 loved it great car, my brother has had two Audi Quattro, service has cost much more on the Audi. Customizing anything is always hard. Your question may be better posted to Audi or Saab specific websites but one link you may like is covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online -

Thanks a ton for the link, I'm going to definitely pay it a visit. Though I know I'm not destined to make any and all repairs, both present and future, on the car, I do like to know about what I'm driving. I love being able to fix things myself. Saves time, a trip, and money. When you said that service cost much more for the Audi, I guess I had to wonder just what I got myself into. The Saab repairs were killing me. Anyway, if I have time this weekend, I'll have to prepare the Saab for sale. I'm going to miss her. I can't say that she treated me well, but when she was working, she was fun to drive and I appreciated all of the thought that went into the design. -
