Hmmmm...  It's interesting that you report  "acute attachment failure" of 
your belly pan after seeing the change droid.  Mine suffered the exact same 
fate after my last visit to my "local" (60 miles from here) Certified Audi 
Mechanic at the "local" stealership.  I have been driving sans belly pan 
ever since.  That's part of why I'm working at developing an affordable 
FMIC for my car.  Once it's done and I find it works well I'll see about 
putting it out as a bolt-on kit.  I'm anticipating a price below, hopefully 
well below, $1K (like maybe $700 to $800 or possibly even a bit less) once 
everything is all together.
