    I've never heard that, I'd be interested to find out whether it's true.

    Total BS, get yourself a copy of etka (via ebay) and know what part numbers you need. Go to any dealer and give them the number and the cash, as special orders will not be refunded, so make sure you are 100% on the part numbers you need. Or find a dealer who's' parts department staff can be arsed with customer service, and will spend a bit of time with you looking for the correct parts.

    That is true ONLY for certain major parts - like the bodyshell, but the vast majority of parts can be supplied by any Audi dealer with a decent parts department.

    I believe that is true for all body shell's not just the RS4. I don't think Audi what people to be making their own Auid's.
