I have had the coolant leak and it is o-rings on the back of both
heads.And, I just picked up my car today from getting a new hydralic
pump (ouch!)
and the cruise control recall done.  Which was the reason it was there
since my throttle stuck open at about 80-85mph on the highway.  Not very
fun.  I wonder if Audi will split the towing cost after all it was a
recall repair?

By the way to all V8 owners if you have not gotten the recall repair to
the cruise control done, I highly recommend it!
