I just bought pentosin from http://www.thepartsconnection.com/
They had it on special last week.  I forget the exact price, but it was
something less than $10 per quart.  My parts have not arrived yet, so I
can't say much about them other than they exist, but they were very helpful
and kind on the phone and via email.  If you are polite, and mention the
Quattro List, they may give you the special price even though it is no
longer on special. YMMV.

I bought my Prestone Extended Life antifreeze at the local large chain car
stuff store, either Al's or Shuck's up in these parts.  The aluminum head
engines need a special antifreeze, generally called phosphate free in the
manuals.  The one I bought is orange, is silicon and phosphate free, and
costs about double what the normal antifreeze costs.  Until I hear otherwise
that this is a bad idea, this is the antifreeze I use in the Audi.
