Mechanical device = maintenance (if you want it to live)

Anyone know if Rod @ TPC is planning another 'timing belt kit' special any
time soon?

Thanks all for the replies, I've now got reams of printed info on the up and
coming procedures.  As far as searched archives, I checked the 200 mailing
list archives for this info and found nothing, and also ran the search
function on Chris's web site and nothing appropriate came up in the top ten
for timing belt info.  Probably would have found the info if I would have
just manually searched the index.  So, looks like I have some work ahead of
me, and if I'm not careful I could wind up rebuilding the whole car.  It's
kind of funny, as I looked at the work ahead of me in this project, and then
the suspension rebuild to happen next, and whatever else the Audi might
throw my way, I've also been asking the question; why do I like this car
again?  Sure it's powerful, smooth, quiet, communicative, well tuned, but
for god's sake does the maintenance ever stop?  Regarless of spamming, an
Integra GSR is starting to look more and more attractive; low maintenance,
small nimble package (!
along the lines of a GTI since VW can't seem to build a GTI with the soul of
the original), well tuned, good resale, broader market appeal, good gas
mileage, although it isn't the best design from an asthetic (sp?) point of
view.  I would loose the Audi panache, the comfortable seating for four, the
ski sack, quattro, and the ability for mucho hp, and a really helpful
community of people with knowledge on the car, but...  I guess I'll go ahead
and do the maintanance here, get things square again, and see what I think
at that point, just seems like the maintanance never stops.  Regardless,
thanks again for the input.
