    Hi Paul,

    Glad to see you're on here too!

    It would be a real pity to see B5 A4's (and C5 A6s and D2 A8s and first gen TTs) almost completely disappear from the roads - especially if the recall gets extended to post 2000 models.

    Dead starter perhaps?

    Slow turn over and eventual start would explain the smelly exhaust - injectors fire as the engine cranks.
