    I thought it was Trade part specialists? either that or they drive a$$ Long way lol. I agree though pretty good and my local audi garages all use them for parts so good to cut out the expensive middle man!

    I may have got the S bit wrong... but you get the idea,
    They are always far more happy to help and will even give you part numbers to check against the parts on your car to make sure your ordering right. My audi dealer flat refuse to do this

    Theres a TPS near me, never thought about going there and I've been told its trade only.
    Do they sell to the public or do you have lie and say your a trader?

    I hear that alot of them nowadays dont mind selling to the general public, either that or get someone in the trade to get it for you, if you know someone, alternatively if you are after parts, send a PM to PJMSPEEDY, he can get OEM parts at a reduced rate.

    If you go in confidently and say 'I want this part' then you'll probably find they'll be happy to take your money. But if you try to buy a bulb, then ask if they'll fit it for you, etc then they'll probably tell you to get lost.

    I've had 2 clutch switches and a MAF from TPS in Tewksbury and I haven't been asked what garage I work for etc. I even changed the MAf outside their office to get the money back lol. Its probably branch preferance.

    I'd figured that the S in name might not mean Sheffield after a bit of searching lol!
