plain old PS fluid vs Green Gold

Do NOT use regular generic power steering fluid in any Audi which specifies 
G00200, CH7 or CH11 or similar.

The recommended fluids have a different composition, and plain old power 
steering fluid will attack and swell the seals in the rack, the PS pump, 
and the hydraulic brake booster ("the bomb"), as well as probably rot your 
teeth, make your hair fall out, and make you grow another head.

As was mentioned, unless you plan to replace EVERYTHING, don't do it. Fix 
the leaks instead - it will be WAY cheaper.

Best Regards,
