Re: New Dimensions ???

<< 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)...
