Might want to figure in dropping the dual-cat exhaust to r&r the pan. Also 
the likelyhood that the car may not have the trans fluid level dipstick tool, 
and could be set more precisely with the VAG 1551 scantool. Throw in some 
exhaust harware, mebbe a gasket or two, and it seems to come into perspective.
