I was following this thread with interest since I will be the next one to do
the gaskets etc. to stop the oil flow on my 93 90Q V-12v.  Please let us
know how you do and what obstacles you run into if any.

Yeah, some of the dealer parts prices for a number of the 'minor' gaskets,
etc are obscene too! Also I just paid £35 (about $60) for my standard
service items of fuel filter, oil and air filter from my local audi dealer

replacement of the valley pan gasket on my '93 100CSQ wagon.  Time consuming
but really not too, difficult.  I have found that the passageway where the
EGR valve attaches to the manifold was plugged.  The EGR sensor is located
on the opposite end.  I am hoping this is responsible for a troublesome
"check engine light" which comes on at a constant speed of around 45-50 mph.
Will not come on when travelling 70 mph.  Pulling the codes have been
mis-leading.   I also replaced the throttle body gasket, oil valves under
the valley pan and vacuum tubing.  The dealer charges $28.00/meter for
braided cloth covered tubing. That's obscene!!

   Now to see if it will start.

  Best regards,
