Go for it.....  I referenced this some time ago in a post regarding
alternative ordinance....  I believe the fittings even fit....  The nice
thing about the BMW application is that the rebuilds are cheap, since the
accumulator comes in more than 1 piece.....  Audi should look closely at this
configuration, better engineered for a hydraulic part with a limited life....
