As a prospective purchaser of an A2, and someone who hangs on to his cars for some years...not an annual updater...I'm a little apprehensive about the car ceasing production in 2005. What effect is this going to have? It could lead to classic status with sought after low mileage cars commanding a premium..or unwanted oddities with dubious back up from Audi dealers...difficult to repair because of the aluminium technology and difficult to sell. What do people think? How long are car manufacturers obliged to support models?
