Well, first you could try calling Linda at Carlson Audi to get a legitimate
dealer price on both pump and holder.  I'd be worried if the two aftermarket
quotes didn't mention the new holder - I'd assume its a version of the old 

Next I would try Chris at Smith's Import Specialists (216) 543-7100 as he 
could probably explain what happened with Rev A  (is rev B necessary?)
and he can give you a good price (hopefully he has one in stock).
Good Luck
