How about quality of the parts? Are body parts double galvanized? Up to
the same standard as the OEM parts? Etc?
I did not respond earlier since my car is an urS6 and I was under the
impression that parts for this car were not available. Now it looks like
you may have access to something usable for me. Certain A6 parts will work
quite nicely in my S6. How about S6 specific parts? At the moment I have
no obvious immediate need but the prospect of lower cost high quality parts
certainly is appealing.
How about such items as RS2 manifold, RS2 turbos, cams, and upgrade parts
such as these? Are they available also? If so, I am definitely interested
if the pricing is significantly better than the already available items.
