Crap. I have a gauge from an early Coupe (150C) and a sender from a 4KQ 

I'll bench-test them together first to see how far off the gauge will be 
at a known temperature (100C).

Thanks for the tip.

IMO best place is the factory place - use the factory sender that screws 
into the pump on the front of the block.  You can get a used one off a CGT
and snag its gauge - you know they work together.  Beware there are
different temp ranges so make sure you get proper corresponding
senders/gauges.  ISTR early Audis had a 150C range while later cars have


'84 ur w/ oil temp gauge
