Solomon - some of the A/C compressors on Audis are Delcos, and are 
available for surprisingly few $$ on the aftermarket.  (I bought one 
for my '84 5KT at NAPA for about $125....but haven't had to replace 
the one on my '90, thank heavens...)  That's one I'd try to get from 
NAPA locally just to see what happens!  Condensor ought to be 
available thru them as well.

IMO, buying A/C systems from Delco/GM is a smart move for many 
manufacturers.  Even Rolls-Royce uses GM  aircon parts - they're 
a good system.
