      This is the B6 forum. The car you're asking about is a B5.5, so this is the wrong forum for it.

      I would avoid a car with an engine that has consistently been low on oil. This is one of the best...

      When VW set out to make the NMS, they took the B6 platform and stretched it out. There is no current Audi that matches the NMS.

      Don't mean to say anything nasty about the 2.5L, it's just not a performance engine. You need a VR6 for real speed.

      VR6 valve cover gasket

      Noticed a considerable oil leak down the side of the engine block today, which points to the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals. I don't have the tools to do it myself, so a dealer will...

      I use the same stuff that I use for the bodywork, either Chemical Guys Snowfoam or Citrus Wash and Gloss. Both seem to do a clean well, combined with a good brush.
