    best place to get a rear brake caliper

    The handbrake lever on my drivers side rear brake caliper has seized up and is barely functioning, it *just* passed its MOT in March but only just so I wanted to try and get it sorted.

    My mechanic has tried to free it up a couple of times but it always seizes back up again so we have decided itss time for a replacement caliper.

    Quote for a genuine caliper from Audio was 125 + VAT
    and for a pattern part was 80 + VAT I would like to try and source one cheaper than this I dont mind using a second hand one but obviously I don't want the same problem again.


    Where is the best place to get hold of one ?

    Car is a 2001 Facelift S3

    Thanks
    James

    Do you know the part number James?
    Theres a warehouse here that stocks the main dealers of all the VAG car sellers in this area however if your in the motor trade you get things at trade price. So if you get a part number i could see how much it would be from there.
