[A4] Climate Control HU

I checked with Chris, he asked for the build date (or old p/n) because there 
was a changeover to a different unit.  I do not have the car with me (not my 
car).  I too, figured that a even a good used one would have a limited life. 
So the reman idea seems to make sense to me, .but we're trying to keep costs 
down without being penny-wise and pound foolish. I was hoping to get some 
feedback from the list.

The place I was directed to is: www.bbareman.com  They also do ABS pumps and 
instrument clusters.  I have had no experience with them, has anyone used 
them or any other remanufacturer with good (or not so good results)?

'91 200q20v Avant 298K miles
(seven previous Audis gone but not forgotten)
