New (to us) Brake Servo

One of the charming characteristics of our quattro is that it has real brake pedal feel. Hit the brakes and it seems like your actually pressing the pads with the ball of your right foot, and calf, and quads and every bit of weight you can muster. That's because there's NO power assist. The servo hisses at you every time you stab the brake pedal. It's almost like it's taunting you.

It turned out that it's a bit more difficult to find a lightly used servo that would fit our car. Eventually we posted a WTB message on the AudiWorld Forms And soon enough I got a reply from an audi fan that happened to have a working (used) model that he pulled from a coupe.

We should get it next week.
