Vast experience, are you a mechanic trained by either audi or bmw, do you 
have 20 or so bmw's that you work on or audi's.  I have a least 6 5000's 
siting behind my fathers shop you can have.  All with engines that are 
not worth fixing.  But damn if my bmw is still running as good as new 
with hardly any problems along the way.  As a mechanical engineer and as 
other engineers have noted the bmw 6cyl is an excellent design.  
By the way did you ever figure out what maser shares your biturbo engine
