To put this in perspective - I few months ago did an upgrade of my mk2 golf - installed rear axle with disc brakes and ARB - so I refurbished all the stuff - took donor axle apart, sandblasted and...

"completely different" in this case means "parts aren't interchangeable", but not that basic principles or shapes would be different, for example, changing audi rear axle bushes for golf rear axle...

I don't have experience, but from the others I know that from the C series the compatibility was such that something from early C5 could be fitted downwards - usually 1998-1999 S-line wheels going to...

When that older car looks cool and sounds cool, it cannot be sleeper - and I guess even UK youth, driving 1.2 corsas and fiestas, do understand that car with "quattro" badge on boot is cool... :D

That A200q isn't a sleeper, because you can expect something from audi which surely has turbo in it. It would be, if it would appear as stock A100. Sleeper is something like my mk2 golf - looks like...

According to catalogue 82 mm bearings should be on all V6'es - I'm personally 100% sure about 2.8.

Age of the fusebox and wiring should make no difference, but gauge of original wires aren't very thick. But then again - it's not a turbo engine and therefore not important and also probably pump...

Well, I doubt the flywheel theory very very much. Yes, lighter vs heavier flywheel makes some difference, but mainly where the acceleration is highest - in lower gears, and surely it shouldn't affect...

It's easier to say where you can't put one - likely newer cars with wiper relay which is in double size, or it's functions have been taken over by some control unit.

As for the relay, you can either open it up and look for broken joints, or go upgrade path and get mk3 golf wiper relay with number 99 on top.
