The final report of installing the high pressure hydraulic hose (pump to
rack) is in:

1h 30min to R&R the hose -- $102
Engine Wash -- $20

The normal time to RR this hose is 1 hour so - 30 extra minutes to deal with
a damaged bolt is accecptable.  I had though envisioned taking a skilled
mechanic no more than an hour to do this.  I am just glad to no longer be
lubricating parking lots with Pentosin. The engine wash was pricey and not
needed.  When I pointed this out the mechanic removed it from my bill.

Boulder has such a high concentration of Audi's and three or four excellent
Audi specialists, that I am assuming the market clears to a fair price -
just a terribly high price with respect to the value of a 200. Now if I had
an A4 the shop rate would be in a better perspective.

Thanks again to you list stalwats.
