Uh Oh. My cover is blown. Now everyone knows that I'm one of those 
nut cases who is hooked on the adrenaline rush of working without 
the Bentleys, surely the equivalent of flying on the trapeze 
without a net. (Actually the Qlist is a pretty good net.)  

I really do plan on getting the Bentleys, just as soon as the Audi 
gives me two or three months in a row without needing $100-600 in 
parts. (Is that a realistic hope?) I keep telling my wife that the 
motor and drivetrain are good for well over 200K, and there is a 
finite number of ancillary parts (master cyl., bomb, calipers, CC 
controller, steering rack, etc., etc.)
