Re: Pentosin 7.1 vs 11

I started this thread, and I am still somewhat confused, although today I
stopped at the Audi dealer, looked at their can of fluid that they sell
under the correct part number, and it clearly said that it was Pentosin 11s
and that it was synthetic.  It looks to me that they made a running change
under the same part number as several people have mentioned.

1991 200 20v Quattro sedan, new Euro lights last week, Ned's stage III chip
this week, God only know what the following week (maybe new tires for my 17"
BBS rims).  This is so easy to justify after looking at a $35,000 Volvo,
then deciding the Audi is a great car if you correct the flaws.  Thanks
Quattro list!
