    OEM airbox screws/bolts needed.. will pay

    As above really guys. I have the airbox but no fixings for it. I will hapily pay for these if you have them spare. I;m removing a dirty K n N that previous owner had fitted ( badly ) and cant justify the 120 pound extra the insurance company wants for a cone.

    Thanks muchly, could a moderator lock the thread when someone gives a positive response.

    didnt realy want to pay dealer prices sandra, thaught if someone had the parts laying around ( as most people seem to go jetex ) then they might want to flog them. I cant find any on ebay that dont come with the air box. Thanks, Jamie

    2 Mine were missing, in Nottingham we have a fixings shop that has every size bolt, screw, nut, nail, washer ever made. I just got some from there. Cost couple of quid. I also changed all my engine cover fixings to Allen key heads as the STD ones were rounded off.

    I'm not sure why you are so worried? Dealer prices are not too bad for screws and bolts. I paid 26p each for the screws that hold the lower door skirt trim on an S3, the dealer had to take £1.04p off me for 4 screw, the postage and packaging must have cost that!? Haldex ECU metal gasket and hex bolts are under £5 aswell. It's the larger parts you need to worry about!

    I bought a fixing a few months back for my airbox whilst I was in getting a pair of screws for my engine cover and if memory serves me right it was less than a pound.

    I'm all for saving money, but if there's an Audi dealership near you, it would def be worth ringing and double checking.
