    2006 2.0 TDI Glow Plugs

    I've been quoted Ł15+vat each at my local garage (he said he gets his parts from TPS so would be genuine parts used). Can I get them any cheaper from elsewhere?

    I've seen some Bosch ones on ebay for Ł10 each delivered but dont wanna use aftermarket if they are not as good.

    Cheers

    Uh difference is Ł8 per plug, I'd be going with genuine for that small difference.

    Yeah went with genuine in the end and had my local Audi dealer fit them. Best thing was that fitted all four plugs and gasket for Ł82 all in!! They never quoted me for labour so honoured their original price :-)

    I had the car checked over and scanned by Audi just after I bought it the other week. They said that a fault was showing up for plug 3, so I just got all four replaced so that they are all the same age.
