To one and all -
Eventually a longer, more detailed email will follow on the subjects of the IA3+ ECU mod, temperature related boost variations, the possible value of these cars, Thanksgiving, Swedes and Audis. However, my immediate (but not urgent) need is for a source of Audi part 034133649C - otherwise known as an S2 Air Intake Pipe Connector for the 3B, RR, ABY and ADU engines.
The local Audi dealer says they can get one in about a week or two from Texas for the tidy sum of $64+, which seemed a little steep to me. I have located an online source from www.vagparts.com for about $23 not including the VAT calculation (which is supposed to be dropped if sending outside of the U.K) and whatever overseas shipping might be. However, I am hesitant to order from overseas if there is a good stateside supplier. Anyone have experience with VAGParts.com?
I have already checked a number of the common U.S. suppliers such as SJM, Arizonaautohaus.com, Audicarparts.com, etc., that all seem to be linked to the WorldPac distribution network, but I have not had success in finding it or perhaps I haven't conducted the appropriate search within those web sites. I also have not yet requester a quote from SJM.
Any information will be most helpful.
