11500, just did a trans fluid change. Careful what you read, I bought 6 quarts thinking I would have one extra. Not a chance, I had to pump about a quart or the old sludge back in to fill it once it started sucking it up, I recommend getting 7-8 quarts, but no less than 7.

Default 1999 A6 2.8 Quattro....

1999 1/2 A6 2.8 Quattro
310k miles ...labor of love...
Major work performed this year was fuel filter change....(relatively painless job beneath the rear seat) and while replacing gaskets observed that the tracks for the timing chain tensioner (passenger side) were worn, replaced both.
Maintenance work is current...3 timing belts later...Every system has been touched over our 15 year relationship.
Would like to attack the interior, lots of smalls....i.e. drivers seat - bottom, cup holder, glove box, carpet....any suggestions for source would be welcome...
