Only "a couple of oil filters"? That doesn't sound very optimistic about
long-term expectations for your Audi.  :-)

Although I buy lots of parts from Carlsen, I agree that they can sometimes
be sloppy on the delivery end of things. But anyway I wouldn't expect
they'd be the best (i.e., cheap) source for something like oil filters.
Earlier this year I bought a dozen Mann filters from The Parts Connection
at about $3.50/ea--including UPS from CA to NY.
