[Es2] Windshield

The dealer price and availability varies by moonphase and precipitation
forecast. They at one point were readily available and around $320 then they
went up to $450 with limited availability. They went as high as $1103 with
nearly no availability. They dropped to the $600 range and the last I
checked they were around $340 with spotty availability. As of Jan 1 my local
source no longer can get Audi parts since he's a VW dealer but he still
feeds me pricing. 

But note! They may have listings and pricing but I would get calls a day
after ordering and promising someone one, that they were not
available...oops sorry. I spoke with the regional manager for PPG and he had
three for me. Supposedly one broke, they lost one and he wouldn't try to
ship the last one since it was in a mid-west warehouse. Oops, sorry.

I take anyone's assertion that a part is available till they order it and
get delivery of it. Sorry for the cynicism, but I deal in enough parts to
have run into it a lot.

Hmmm, I was just talking to a shop owner and he told me (two days ago) 
that '90-'91 CQ windshields are now available again and relatively cheap 
from the dealer.  He should know as he had a CQ there in the shop that 
would be getting one.

If you like I can have him check into it tomorrow.
