    Yesterday, I placed an order for four of the spring clips that help attach the gear selector trim surround to the centre console. I didn't have a part number, so the staff member had to spend about fifteen minutes searching the parts catalogue (EKTA, is it?) to identify it. They cost £1.63 for the four, and from the look on his face when I said "Wow, that's your monthly sales bonus taken care of", I guess my sense of light-heated irony needs some more work.

    Let's hear your stories.

    The not pointless pRt I ordered was a lighter rear ashtray in my old b6.

    A) no one is allowed to smoke in my car
    B) I never carry any passengers in the back seats
    C) I wired it up wrong and it only came on when I opened the doors! :p

    Pretty pointless!

    I've ordered everything from a TV tuner to a 19P bolt, having etka saves so much time & pi$$ing around. I realy don't understand why car manufacturers don't allow this to be downloaded FOC with prices or have an online version FOC again with prices. I'm sure it would generate more revenue for dealers & manufacturers
