(1) ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, OR TO ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE PROVIDED UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, WILL BE SETTLED BY INDEPENDENT ARBITRATION INVOLVING A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR AND ADMINISTERED BY THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU (“BBB”) UNDER BBB ARBITRATION RULES, AS MODIFIED BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.

IF CLAIMS ARE ASSERTED AGAINST MULTIPLE PARTIES, SOME OF WHOM ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ARBITRATE, THE CLAIMS SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION MUST BE SEVERED. HOWEVER, YOU RETAIN YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A COMPLAINT WITH ANY REGULATORY AGENCY OR COMMISSION;
(3) NO ARBITRATOR HAS AUTHORITY TO AWARD RELIEF IN EXCESS OF WHAT THESE TERMS OF SERVICE PROVIDE, OR TO ORDER CONSOLIDATION OR CLASS ARBITRATION, EXCEPT THAT AN ARBITRATOR DECIDING A CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO A PRIOR AGREEMENT MAY GRANT AS MUCH SUBSTANTIVE RELIEF ON A NON-CLASS BASIS AS SUCH PRIOR AGREEMENT WOULD PERMIT. IN ALL ARBITRATIONS, THE ARBITRATOR MUST GIVE EFFECT TO APPLICABLE STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS AND WILL DECIDE WHETHER AN ISSUE IS ARBITRABLE OR NOT. IN A LARGE/COMPLEX CASE ARBITRATION, THE ARBITRATORS MUST ALSO APPLY THE FEDERAL RULES OF EVIDENCE AND THE LOSING PARTY MAY HAVE THE AWARD REVIEWED BY A REVIEW PANEL CONSISTING OF THREE (3) ARBITRATORS; AND
(4) IN THE EVENT THE FOREGOING ARBITRATION REQUIREMENTS DO NOT APPLY, YOU AND AOA EACH WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, ANY TRIAL BY JURY AND A JUDGE WILL DECIDE ANY AND ALL DISPUTES.

- a. The Laws Governing Our Relationship
A word about low aspect ratio and high performance tires
High performance tires are designed for better performance and handling in warm climates. When driving in cold, snowy or icy weather, you should equip your vehicle with four all-season or winter tires, which offer better traction under those conditions.
We suggest you use the Audi recommended winter or all-season tires specified for your Audi.
High performance tires also have a lower aspect ratio that aids performance and handling.
Driving over rough or damaged road surfaces, as well as debris, curbs and other obstacles can cause serious damage to wheels, tires, vehicle body and suspension parts.
Be careful to avoid road hazards and reduce your speed, especially if your vehicle is equipped with low profile tires.
Please also remember when making your selection that, while these tires deliver responsive handling, they may ride less comfortably and make more noise than others. Finally, these tires may wear more quickly than other choices.
It is important that the inflation pressure is regularly checked and maintained at recommended levels.
