    Hi Dr61:

    I spoke with Audi and ESI in Southern California a few weeks ago as they have some available but timing is going to be rough for a while. I am currently in a prototype I was supposed to be driving to NY and back on an unpublished drive in preps for a super drive in June. This job consisted of almost 900 man-hours of work and was canceled on Wednesday. I am scrambling for another review vehicle until I fly to NY on the 22nd. Possibly after the NYIAS I have another test drive of a unique vehicle for almost a month that is scheduled to arrive in Houston sometime next week.

    Sometime this spring or summer I will try and fit one in. Just really jammed up with the 4 + months of work being canceled last week and I am trying to recover the best I can. :(

    Sorry you lost that long prep time and opportunity to publish. I hope you can salvage some of the information for use in other ways.

    That really sucks about all of the prep time wasted. That seems to happen to you every so often.
