Two comments, Dave.

Audi's "fix" conversion from UFOs to G60s, IMO, was a downgrade, not an
upgrade in braking performance.

Rotary shaft seals:  If a seal is leaking and no other internal symptoms,
shch as bad noises, add a half a can of engine seal restorer the rear end,
and the other half into the tranny.  Of course this works on engine shaft
seals also.  Don't fix it if it ain't broke!
