Audi coolant substitute

	Somebody mentioned the other day about trying to find a commercially
available coolant for use as a substitute for the recommended Audi coolant.
 I was changing the thermostat in the V8 today and looked into it.

	The only thing I could find that matched exactly was Prestone Long-Life,
in the silver container.  It is labeled "5/150" (5 years/150,000 miles) and
contains no phosphates as the Audi spec coolant.  It is $7.50 at the local
stores vs. $15 for the Audi bottled flavor.  Notably, Audi says to change
it every 60,000 - so I'm going with that.
