    Going to Los Angeles on Tuesday for 3 weeks and will be getting parts for my car while I'm there as they should be cheaper and wondered if anyone knew any reputable companies out there.
    My parts list:
    Hybrid K04
    Down pipe
    Sports cat
    Haldex upgrade controller
    Silicone Hoses
    TIP
    Catch Tank
    Injectors

    Any help would be highly appreciated :friends:

    ECS tuning, exchange rates isn't that favourable, so you might not be saving as much as you think.

    Hi Alex.

    Just do a search on the Internet, while you are out there, for local Audi parts suppliers.

    Good Luck

    Plus that all heavy stuff. The costs involved in sending and import tax etc. will probably all but negate any potential savings. Personally I would try to get all that stuff here. Even if it does only cost an extra couple hundred quid, the fact any warranty claims are to a British company would be well worth it.

    Having said that, some of it is probably okay. Injectors, controller etc may just pop into your bag

    Its not great no, only about 1.46, was awesome when I went out a couple years ago.

    Wont get taxed on anything and theres nothing too heavy listed, prob wont fit a DP in my suitcase though. Will only get parts out there if its significantly cheaper than here.

    let me know what exactly you are looking for and i might be able to help you since i live in Canada/USA and i got most of my parts from here.

    Haldex upgrade is pretty much the same price everywhere...it is 950$
    Downpipe + cats: brand called 42 draft design, its very good quality and it cost 600$

    silicone hoses + tip: same chinese ones so same price. forge is 160$

    Especially if your a bit tanned. A guy I worked with in Canada couldn't go to the US with his MWD tools because of the hassle he got with the border guards thinking they could be weapons of some description.

    "A gamma tool? Is that some sort of dirty bomb?"

    We are allowed 32kgs in each suitcase n I wont get everything on the list as I wont fit everything in n dont have that much money.
