    Better to pay 1500 odd instead of 6k
    All good until it comes time to get a roadworthy certificate and sell.

    Fair call.

    Still dont think its that big of a deal. Just be up front when selling, or trade it and be done.

    Or am i over simplifying it?

    I still dont see it as an issue. Its a car and things can go wrong on a car.
    Whether its 1 day out of warranty or 1 year. Whether its short trips or long trips.
    Unless the car is brand spanking new i just expect maintenance costs long term. Especially if im buying second hand.
    It is what it is.
    Current:
    - Audi S2 1993 - Kingfisher Blue - GTX3582r + E85 = 500kw atw (More power...coming soon)

    - Audi SQ5 2013 - Panther Black Crystal Effect - Red Leather

    Past:
    - AUDI S4 2002 - Nogaro Blue - Stage 3+ 249 Kw atw
    - AUDI S3 2001 - Silver -
    169 Kw atw

    *Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of your car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of your car.
    *Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you.
