My patience is wearing thin, not withyour Audi Qs, but with having to  
read the volumes about your SHO. Maybe you should dump the 200 go  
back to your true love!

Do add a bottle of hydraulic lifter silencing snake oil to the engine  
Also, buy 2 bottles  of engine seal restorer, one added to the engine  
oil and half of the other each in the tranny and rear diff. and  
you’ll never have to replace a rotaary shaft seal.
