Do it yourself, even if you have to convince your wife to let you do it on the kitchen table. It is very satisfying the first time you light an engine you have built yourself from the bare block.

The A4 is such a simple engine that anyone who can turn a wrench can rebuild one.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
