Re: Is Clair cool?
If you really have to resort to buying from a dealer in the
metropolitan Boston area, then opt for Bernadi Audi/VW/Honda on Route
9 instead (junction of Speen Street in Natick); they will match any
other dealers' specials or, if you are really aggressive, they will
even "match" any reasonable "quotes" (so be creative). Other
benefits: large inventory; will deliver; will order +or- 3 days;
will entertain volume discounts (e.g. 10 Audi oil filters for about
$4.50 each); best of all, opens half days on Saturdays!

Well, let's see. I ordered some parts from them and they forgot about it
until a week and a half later when I called, but then they Fedexed it.
They sent me a four-color newsletter with a lot of copy about the
new Porsche Boxter, which looks strikingly like the Porsche Boxster
everyone else has. The ISV was one-third the cost of every other source,
and it works just fine. The newsletter talks about how great the '95
Chardonnays are, and gives a pesto recipe. They actually answer their
email, if not too quickly.
I dunno. Maybe they're not really set up to handle mail order yet. But
they did save me $100 on that ISV and they were competitive on the other
parts (small things, strut bearings and such).
