Hi James,

Appreciate it if you could send pics, but to my work e-mail which you should have.

So here is where I am with research. HKZ101 is now not available as an off the shelf component. Many older euro cars have these devices fitted to the distributor, not the cap as I originally thought. The newer Audis and VWs, and probably others too, have very cheap CPS' in comparison to the S-car. I have found these devices are electrically equivalent to the HKZ101 - they are similar to the Honeywell 2AV54 device.

The CPS for a 2000 Golf costs about $60 so I'm going to pick up one of these and try in my S6 - I'll check the part numbers first for equivalency.

96 S6
