Default Audi Ireland v UK Spares Prices - Rant

Lads,

Been looking for a replacement boot lid handle for some time, have to go main dealer. Local dealers are quoting 249 for the part, it's 160 in the UK. Why the heck these price differences..? V annoying.

It's normally us in the UK complaining about Euro prices for stuff being cheaper. You could always order it from Audi Belfast or Portadown, and it shouldn't cost that much for postage.

The other option is buying online. Have you tried these sites (which I've used in the past when not able to find something):

A8parts supply new parts direct from TPS here in the UK, and ship worldwide.

In fact, new parts represent around 25% of the business turnover these days.

I keep forgetting that, which is especially good since TPS here won't deal with the public.

Ive used Audi Portadown to buy parts several times. Very reasonable for postage to the South. I think 20 last time for a discs, pads etc. which are very heavy. Euro/Sterling rate good at moment also.
Ebay.de can be worth a look also if you have a part no.

Nice one lads....some good tips and sites.

I hadn't thought of Audi NI actually.

And in fact, i need new front discs also...

Are most folks going for the Audi OEM's btw?
