    Audi Stealer Pricing

    This will probably come as no surprise to people here, but I've just realised that for exactly the same part I've been paying around 20% more at an Audi stealer compared to a VW one. The similarity between the MkIV and the A3 mean that you can easily compare.

    Audi want 99.85 for an amplified bee-sting aerial base, VW charge 59.75 for exactly the same part. An engine support arm (dogbone support) is around 50 at Audi, but only 37 at VW. The item codes again are identical.

    Next time the car is in for a service I'll ask them to buy the parts from Citygate VW across the road [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    That is an interesting prospect. My main dealer is still a VW and Audi dealership and the parts dept serves both. Shortly the Audi part will be moving to its own premises and I wonder if the parts prices will rise?
