Everything Wrong with My Audi S6

Everything Wrong with My Audi S6

This is the second post in my series of posts about my 1995 Audi S6. This post will serve as a sort of "tracker" and introductory post as well as a jump-off point for all of the work that will need to be done. I will be tracking things as best as I can and making posts and linking them here. That being said, it is very easy to get into a groove while working and forget to document certain things, so some things will have been missed. I am making this post in 2021 after a significant portion of the work has already been done as a way to link to other posts. These are all of the things that I can think off off the top of my head.
