My car is a quattro, and does have the same 130 HP engine. I assume
the pumps are the same, except there are some differences in the
fuel tank and connections due to the drivetrain in back. I don't
know whether these affect the pump; more likely the mounting bracket
and screw position.

I replaced my fuel pump last summer, but I took (towed ;-() it to
my local Nashua shop to get it done. FWIW, he found the pump for
about $225, and installed it for $39.

You could ask him: Mike Letizia at E. Hollis St. Shell, Nashua.
595-4901. I highly recommend him and his mechanic, Neil, as all-around
great Audi guys.
