Default Where to buy ETKA?

As above chaps, Google returns a fair few hits.

Any recommended sources ?

Cheers

Dont buy it, download it via torrent google should bring back plenty of sources or maybe someone can point you in the correct direction.

My copy came from a site that no longer runs.

Not had much luck with newer vehicles but partslink24.com was great for part numbers for my 1998 S8, comprehensive and without charge although I think to access newer models there is a subscription to pay.

VagCat is fairly good too, free to register. I always used it for my parts, never bothered to download ETKA

Thanks for the feedback chaps

I wouldn't trust the online sources much, from my experience of them, plently of parts are missing, if you're running a copy of etka and have the online updates as I do then you have a far better chance of it having what your looking for.

Plus you can cross reference part numbers to other models, search by term instead of trying to guess which group your part is listed under etc

I work from parts cat and have no issue with finding what i need albeit the search facility not available is occasionally useful.
