    Made my first ever attempt to buy a part from TPS earlier this week, and they were as helpful as I could possibly hope for. Agreed over the phone to sell to me, took the part order, told me it would be in the following morning, and emailed me to say it was ready. The price was 20% below dealer price.

    You need to show that you are in the trade as they dont do walk in customers........coz theyre not about that.

    Strange, I've been into a couple of TPS branches local to me and they have served me without any isssues. Been using them for a couple of years now.

    Only been too tps twice, and going to the audi dealer was cheaper both times :/
    Tps wanted £170 something for a lateral sensor, audi was £140.

    I think I know why this is. I've just had an email from my local TPS, and the email address is not "@tps.co.uk" or anything like that. It's the name of the umbrella company that owns two local Audi dealers. That leads me to conclude that TPS isn't a single nationwide business, but more like a franchise where inidividual local businesses operate their own operation under the same brand.

    That would make sense, hence why some do and some dont, its all about business.
