Nope, the multi-function temp sensor is an audi-specific part.  You could 
Try, but I had no luck last summer looking.  There is a shop that carries 
Audi parts down in south Denver, but I don't have the Phone# on me.  Will 
get it at home tonight-what's your number?  Werner's seems pretty good, but 
I would really like to find an Audi-only shop, preferably one specialzing in 
the 5-cyl. and older cars.  (Yeah, right...)  Like the Audifans sticker

Hi, I am also here in Denver very near rose medical,
I am also having problems with my coolant temp sensor, after 30 minutes of 
driving in I-25, the coolant temp alarm sounds of but the coolant needle is 
halfway. hmm.  could i get this multi sens temp at autozone?

and the classic stalling.(turbo bypass valve)

I had my cars maintenance done with werner's too.

btw. would it be nice if we could have an audifans sticker logo stamp on our 
car, so we could know a fellow lister?.
