Just got around to finally looking at mine. Car is a 2006 A4, quattro, tiptronic, and has 74,000 mi. at time of replacement. I've owned it since 65,000 mi. and had no prior maintenance records...
Looks pretty good, huh? Not at all what I was expecting to see. I replaced my coils and plugs at this time due to misfire issues, and I also changed the fuel filter.
The day after I swapped followers the car threw a CEL and I about poo'd myself, but it was running awesome. http://i.imgur.com/jCsOwdp.jpg phew, seemingly unrelated.
P.S. That banjo bolt sucks
