Had Audi Cares as well a couple years back, didn't find it any different that my current BMW. All my schedule maintenance costs were free. I negotiated Audi Cares into my deal. It covered a lot, including brakes like BMW. What does it matter what Benz, BMW, Audi, etc. parts cost? When you have full new car warranties and free/prepaid maintenance. Basically are costs can be built into the purchase price of each car.
But if you plan on keeping the car for a long period of time. German cars in general cost a boat load to maintain out of their warranties.
