A4 belly pan is Satan's work!

So I thought Audi would have made some progress from the '88 90q to the '97
A4tq.  Like the irritating, easy to break, crack prone, screw-stripping,
clumsy, awkward belly pan would be a far better engineering achievement on
the A4.


The A4 belly pan is worse.  Far worse.  More points of attachment (10 vs
8)!  Two different types of attachment devices!  Even clumsier!  Almost
impossible to attach gracefully by just one person!
Arrrrrrgggghhhhhh!!!!!!  And you can still strip the screws!

OK.  I feel better now.  It no longer bothers me that it takes 3.2 minutes
to change the oil on my 200, and an hour on the A4 (56.8 on taking the
belly pan off and on)....nope, doesn't bother me a bit..........SLM

P.S.  If anyone has come up with a trick to making this easier I'm open to
