Hi Andrew,

	Are you certain about 11S being for '90 or newer Audis? I was told the
7.1 was only good through '85 because starting in '86 a different ZF pump was
used, higher pressure I think, and the 7.1 could "boil". I believe the price is
the same for the two, and I've been using the 11S in my '87 5KCSQ for almost 4
years with no problems...knock on wood...knock on fat cats:-) Does anyone know
for certain about this?

					happy motoring,
