    I really don't understand why people are scared to give an Audi dealer a call about prices on stuff... Audi pricing is as random as you like but it seems to be the same mentality as people who think eBay is the cheapest place to buy anything....

    Certain items can be stupid expensive from Audi like a dual mass flywheel for example... over £500 from Audi, £230 from GSF... same part from same factory, no rings... gaskets and other items though are really cheap and not worth buying aftermarket as you may save £2 but you will prob need to change it again soon...

    GSF are really rather good for prices... I am lucky to have one fairly close to where I work so I can get stuff at lunch time and at least you see what you get...

    Hi guys i know its a silly question but, Euro car parts told me there have them in stock, but when i turned up, they told me their dont do S3 parts. Audi dealers said around £40 each which seems odd and over priced even for dealers.

    thanks for the responce guys, il give GFS a call tomorro. cheers

    you guys are right, turns out there around £5 each from Audi, went down in person and gave me the right prices.

    thanks guys, o and for reference, gaskets are about a quid or two cheaper at GSF. cheers

    other place to try is TPS (Trade Parts Specialists) they are where audi vw seat and skoda dealers go for all there parts

    i get all my stuff trade which is a touch! all genuine VAG parts - which arent that much dearer then motor factors such as GSF
