    I have a 2001 a3 1.8T, a couple of issues have come to m attention recently, after doing some research on here Ive found out I need.....

    * Thermostat, would a Neuspeed thermostat be suitable, if not where would you suggest buying one from?
    * Temp sensor, again where to go for one?
    * also a Brake light switch?

    Any help on where and your good or bad experiences with past parts or manufacturers would be welcomed.

    Thanks

    Audi may be best mate but sometimes or shall I say most times they can be a rip off try TPS always better there!

    For the thermostat I'd get a real VAG one from TPS. I hate changing the stat.

    For the rest, they're easy to change so get any old **** off ebay.
