Nope, it WON'T fit ... I know, because I bought one with intention of making
it fit but eventually gave up and sold it to some guy in Washington for his
GTi rally car. For a start, the VW output flanges are different than those
Audi uses and the ring gear is a different diameter as well (not to mention
the speedomter drive gear and the ... well, you get the idea).
On the other hand, my Bentley manual for the 80 & 90 show that Audi uses the
same transmission for both the 4 cyl and 5 cyl cars ... perhaps it might be
