Tom, I get your point.

My point is, unless we get more info from the OP- the condition of the engine currently, is it FWC, what is included in the quote, etc. the numbers don't add up.

Further, it is such a dead simple engine, it shouldn't intimidate the novice. get on the tools, get your hands dirty, become intimate with the beast that bears you, (okay, that didn't come out right) and get it done.

I understand the unique joy of removing oxidized studs from oxidized blocks thanks to salt exposure- welcome to old cars and ontario winters. The A4 does have an advantage- no aluminum or magnesium blocks or heads to really make things frustrating.
