The point is, simple is better a lot of times. For instance this morning my TPM light came on (they seem to always do that after dramtic shift in temp from hot to cold weather). So I pulled out my simple yet accurate air pressure gauge and it said 34 psi, but wait my electronic one said different. Oh wait it just tturned off.

Guess what? When I checked the air no one ran over my foot, the air didn't blow dust in my eyes, and the cap didn't wedge under my nails.

Maybe if they spent the money on the TPM instead of the oil sensor both these problems would go away.

The point is, if you can't get it right don't release it and fix it later. Short cutting this may have saved a little time, but cost them a sale.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
