Now, I don't want to steal Bernie's thunder here, but...  Minhea, do 
understand that audi doesn't sell the metal distributor gear separately, so all those 
replacement distributors audi had bosch make for the 200t have the narrow tip 
installed.  You will NOT find this rotor at audi, and for good reason IMO, 
it's not necessary with the proper fix.  Look at it this way, the narrow tip 
rotor didn't solve the problem with the plastic gear.  The metal gear solved the 
problem of the narrow tip rotor.  Put the proper DNA makeup in the chicken, the 
egg needs no special treatment.

It's not "right" or "wrong", it's necessary or not.  If you want to claim it 
does something, fine.  Then I would also claim that the MC and all other metal 
distributor 10vt should have the same benefit with a narrow rotor.  Ah, but 
they didn't share the same problem.  Full circle.

Umm, all 3Bs and RRs AFAIK had this. Even late 1992 S2 3Bs had it from the 
factory. Plus the brand new distributors with metal gears still come with 
them attached, so who's right? ;)
