If anything roush would be retrofitting it so it doesn't leak. Cause all the companies are too lazy to do it themselves.

Hopefully this year it needs basically nothing but we're expecting it to need more of the same next year.

thats why she bought the BMW. to save miles/maintenance on the Audi
It has:
New coolant tank
New clutch...possibly flywheel, I'd have to check the sheets
New water pump
New control arms
New tires
New ball joints
New CV joints (the rubber pieces to stop leaks, etc)
New valve cover gaskets
Full inspection
New timing belt
New guide pulley(s)
New accessory belt
New tensioner
Fairly new pads and rotors
...and now a new tire since I got a g nail in one of the tires last night. FML

All done as of 11/27/2012. It has all the records for everything. It drives, sounds, and feels very healthy.

Although I know of the common nuisances, like leaky valve cover gasket, leaky coolant tanks + hoses.
I am ordering a full 12-piece set of Samco coolant hoses, a new reservoir, and having someone mock up an aluminum copy off it.

uh.....you mean 4 new tires right?

or are you trying to see how quickly you can destroy the quattro system?

they are terribly sensitive to tire wear differences...

also I'm not saying it will be a bad car, in fact I pray its not for your sake, all I'm saying is they are expensive to maintain and literally eat parts. plan accordingly.

with the space in the wheel wells...

yup.

think i could run wobbles and put 5x4.5's on? 5x112 = 5x4.41.... so it's not a BIG difference... plus i could get those satin black steelies and roll hard all day. or paint em some crazy ass color.
