I'm in total agreement concerning Audi's (engines) finding the scrap yard. It does happen... but rarely IMO. Design is heavy
with the 4.2L V series. Other than poor maintenance, they last
until the entire unit is totally worn out (as in neglect) or destroyed.

A properly maintained engine will normally have no crud in the spout (filler port). IF you locate a 4.2L that has been run with anything but synthetic (and darned if I know why someone would do this sort of thing in this day and age) simply look for another.
