Your car has the old turbos FOR SURE. The redesigned turbos were put in cars
starting in 11-01. I have the P/Ns somewhere of the new turbos they put in
my '01 S4. If you can find the P/Ns of your turbos then you can compare. If
you cannot find them then please don't ask me to dig through "stuff" that
should have been filed.
