    MOT time next fri/sat and whilst I was doing my coilovers I noticed that the rubber tops on the rear springs were rather perished I have looked on ETKA and the part no is 1J0 512 149 B, ill need 2, I found some cheap ones on fleebay £9 ish but my account is suspended (i owe them lol). I tried Audi Leeds today and they want to charge £16 odd each to which i choked, laughed and said goodbye.

    GSF and Euro dont list them and TPS are trade only, sooo where can I get 2 from? and cheap but decent, the ebay ones are febi which I beleive are decent.

    Here is a screenshot from etka with the offending part so you know:

    I have called in on my local TPS many times for bits and bobs and not once have they asked me to confirm any connection with the trade. I suspect they are less fussy if you call in, in person and are stood there knowing what you want, cash in hand.

    The prices are o.k but if you are genuine trade they discount a good amount off, so its not like they are doing you (joe public) any favours at full retail price.

    Theres not many places wont sell you an item while you are stood there waving notes at them.

    Good luck!

    TPS have changed their policy recently, so its best just going in and asking if they can do it at trade price for you, i have done this a few times and they have done it at trade price.

    nope they are not a test item, as its just a rubber that the spring sits in, they are only there to stop noise nothing else dude
