Re: Audi V8s: 1990/1991

1)  Have the timeing belts been changed?
2)  Does the rear main leak?
3)  Ring front disks?  Don't get the ones that look like bowls.
4)  Check the exhaust system.  The wear out quickly and are expensive to go

I am not sure of many inprovements except of the bigger motor in the later
year.  However, You can put out the same power on the smaller motor with a
chip.  Hemmings has one for sale in the June Issue (a 5 speed).
