The plastic gear has more slop in it over time.  My bet is audi found this 
out, and addressed it by using a narrower distributor rotor.  If you go back to 
the MC and the metal gear, there was no narrow distributor.  You go forward to 
the 3B with metal gear, the narrow rotor was dropped by audi and bosch 
application cats.  

Again, it can't "hurt" to put it in.  I also strongly suspect this will get 
dropped alltogether pretty soon, as this was a single year/model application.

What is the rationale for the implication that distributor-gear 
material is a factor in determining the choice of rotor tip (narrow 
vs. wide)?
