Thanks Guys.

I don't have the car in front of me, but I'll check the manual, model 
and year this weekend.  I know the car is at least 5 years old, and 
she's certain it's the 3.0L, so (Chris) I'm guessing it's the regular A6 
Avant. Cody, thanks for the heads-up about the VVT,  I don't think I 
want to really deal with that.  I'll send her to a local shop.
