Google under advanced search has a site specific search.  Just put in

Here is my first post from 11 years ago.  Ny 20V is still driven daily.

While changing the rear pads on my 1991 90 Quattro 20v I noticed the
inlet pipe of the 
rear muffler in close proximity to the drive flange on the rear
differential.  One of 
the rubber hangers broke on the rear muffler and allowed the pipe to
contact the 
rotating flange when under loads of greater than one G.  It wore a hole
through it.  
I wonder what that will cost come inspection time?

I would recommend other owners on the list with similar vehicles to
the donuts on the rear muffler for rotting and deterioration.  The two
hanger is a lot cheaper than a new rear muffler.
