This is far from new.  I have 2 dealers in the state.  One in the largest 
city and one 80 miles away.  Guess who runs 20% less thant the other?  It is 
even worse if a part has a VW # and an Audi #!
It applies to sevice as well.  When I lived in the northeasts most detached 
from reality city, IMHO, Greenwhich Ct,  one family owned virtually all of 
the high end dealership in town.  An Audi 90K service for my 4000Q was $400. 
  The same service from a dealer on Cape Cod, not the stricks by any means 
was $160.  I couldn't believe it.  I got an itemized check list and it was 
the exact same service.  I have picked out my next Audi and will be more 
than happy to buy it, in 8-10 years!

Maybe I shouldn't post this, but this really bugs me. While researching
parts and prices for a clutch replacement, I found that a part which cost
$50 (before a 20% inet discount) from a certain Audi dealer in Boston is
50%...yes 50% more expensive at a certain Audi stealer in Hartford. This is
pure bull#$%%. I guess it must be less expensive to do business in
Boston...yea right.
