1996 Audi A6 Quattro- 2.8L V6289,900
1996 2.8,12 valve, A4, oil collecting under intake. Leake stopped a couple of years ago, but I pressure washed my motor and it redeveloped. I haven't fixed it yet.
10,000 miles after the head gasket job which cost me £3,000 (or $5,000) - I love the car, it had a few lovely models on both the passenger seat and my seat...; however, this is in Britain, and since WWII we lost all manufacturing thanks to Most Honourable Anthony Blair (Tata -Jags run on BMW modified engines, we also assemble, Nissans, Hondas, Beijing Motors - MG).....'sic transit gloria mundi' ('Thus passes the glory of the world')
