      There are two sizes of master cylinder - the single-chamber servo A4 has 23.81mm, the twin-chamber servo A6 has 25.4mm. The two master cylinders aren't interchangeable, but there is a single-chamber...

      Hehe same for me on the spare tire well :D That rear subframe is really heavy so lots to save there. Ditto the rear uprights, but other than fabricating some I don't know of an alternative.

      My A6 still has the same OE rotors on it that it came with 120K miles ago, but is on its 4th set of pads. No idea when the rotors or first set of pads went on before I got it. The rotors will...

      3 beeps is usually something critical - brake fluid, coolant level or oil pressure. Brake fluid or coolant level could both be triggered by being on a slope if they are running low. Mine drove me...

      Oh I see what you mean now. You can't actually get the knuckle on with the column and subframe in place - it won't fit in to the gap. With a mk2 the way to do it loosen the subframe bolts to allow...

      Did you use the mk3 rack or the mk2 one? The spline on the mk3 is different so if you did use that then you will also need the UJ section from the mk3. You can still use your mk2 column though...

      I wrapped my downpipe 130K miles ago and it still looks brand new under the wrap. The wrap fell off way before any of this mythical corrosion happened.

      I'd say its pad material pickup on the rotor surface - I had pretty much the exact same problem on my A6 last year. It seems to be caused by holding the brakes on when the rotors are really hot, say...

      I think the odds of drowning are fairly minimal when compared with the effects of hitting water at 260 mph! These guys are seriously nuts, and yeah the way they corner just boggles the mind.
