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....
