Here is a copy of the email I sent to Annette Johnson at Audi America. I encourage everyone to send emails to Annette at the following email address: Annette.Johnson@audi.com and copy the boss at: email@example.com
I understand that you are evaluating the problems with the ABS control unit. There is a plethora of information about this problem on the Internet. I have a blog about this very same problem at http://audi-vw-abs-recall.blogspot.com/ There are several links to people having this same problem and there are links on how to replace the unit yourself and where to get rebuilt units for $250 instead of the $1,700 quote by Rectal Motors.
You can read my story about the problem and how poorly I was treated by Rector Motors (I will never go back there) at this link: http://audi-vw-abs-recall.blogspot.com/2005/07/audi-and-vw-please-recall-cars-between.html
