First let me try to decipher your gibberish!  You maybe have a Q about
bearing wheel replacement, as the subject line indicates?  But I think maybe
not on a Porsche upgraded to UFOs!

You nust have either:
1. Two Audi 20Vs in which you think that all the front wheel bearings are
going South or,
2. One 20V  which you believe has two wheel bearings on each front side,
both sides of which are going South?
Multiple choice, 1.or 2.?

My first Q in response:  If you are thinking of doing the job yourself and
want to do it right, why are you looking for a means of in situ replacement?
IMO, a flawed plan.  Don't fix what ain't broke!  That requires detail part
inspection, and lots of other stuff needs PM while you are in there.  You
may have to rent or borrow the use of a hydraulic press to do it right, but
do so.

In case you missed it, I'll forward my Wheel Bearing Postmortem posting of
last Nov. for your consideration.  If explicit Qs, ask.
