Re: Crying over cost, 200TQ

        Tjena, even if you are in Sweden, mailorder from here may be doable.
        I have included a previous post here that discussed the brakes..
        Well, here is the meat of my reponse.  I too have thought about
        converting my car, but have problems dumping that much money into a
        car that I bought for $9000.  I have done some research into parts.
        The rotors are around $290 (and going down) from Shokan
        (1-800-ALL-AUDI).  And the pads are down to $89 for REMZAs from
        BLAUfergnugen in Manitowoc, WI.  Their number is 920-758-3232.  So,
        when a brake job costs $700 if you do it yourself, it's hard to
        justify $2500 to modify the car.  By the way, BLAUfergnugen is a
        great source for all other quattro parts.  Their web page is at

        Good luck with your car!
