I'm familiar with AllData's product, but that isn't what I'm talking about here.
The dealer had the parts fiche on a computer...it showed exploded views of
various parts of the car with part numbers.  AllData doesn't offer this as
near as I can tell.  The parts fiche is what various listmembers have been
talking about making paper copies of.

BTW, for those wanting their parts fiche printed on paper...at my local
library they have fiche readers with a printer built in.  You can print any
or all of the fiche there.  The library's reader isn't the right size to
accomodate the whole Audi fiche.  But you can turn it sideways and read half
at a time.  An alternative...the actual text portion of the audi fiche is in
a small enough area (on my fiche) that you could use scissors and cut the
fiche to fit in a standard reader.
