<< Before the historics while Tom and I were working on trying to get the QTC
 legal to drive I thought I'd price spark plugs, filters, etc. at New
 Dimensions.  In the past I've been able to find parts for Audis there, but
 this time I got the distinct impression that the guy I was talking to could
 care less about Audi parts, and even though I'm sure that at least some of
 the parts would have been common with VW apps.  I just drove by the place
 today, and they still have the word "Audi" with VW on their sign.  Has
 anyone dealt successfully with ND lately? ... I suppose I could have gotten
 an non-Audi parts guy ...  I'm half tempted to recall the endorsement I gave
 to ND on the vendor page of the AF website.  

    You have to remember, these guys perk up when you call about 
supercharging your VR6 or turboing your 4 banger, and a simple set of 
sparkplugs, without the 1 hour of labor associated, may not be enough to 
prompt a polite conversation.  I'm sure they could get you the parts you 
need, but they are hardly a low cost provider that other places may be.  In 
the past I have had friends go there for work, and were charged down to the 
washer and screw for every part and labor (I was surprized not to see: $.15 
-One second spray of WD-40)...
