Thanks for the encouragement! :) Luckily(for me), my mechanic/friend (who works on my Audi's out of his good will, he really would rather play with his 1960s Pontiacs!) will be doing it. I'm not the most mechanically inclined and I don't have the time anymore to spend three days crawling around trying to figure it out. I had to come to the realization that I'm not that guy. I've never been too good at it, but with kids and a house to redo and two restaurants to run...I had to throw in the towel on my old Audis! My 4kq was given to my another friend, who has already gotten through 75% of the issues it had and it's only been his for a week! The advantage is that he lives overseas most of the year, so if I really miss it, I can still get it out of storage!
