Ah!   Slowly, a dim light dawns.  You want to know which of the adapters that 
Hoffman/Whitney supply is any damn use on an Audi?
OK.  On the MB engine (therefore at least the MC-2?) the only adapter you need 
is Hoffman's R14I46.  It's a great long thing, with a hex cross-section.  You 
also need an R14K o-ring.

Anyone with the same kit care to post which of the five adaptors in the kit are 
used on other Audis?
