Just a note to those not "in the know"... Chris Semple is too polite to
toot his own horn. Understandable understatement. Chris is, in fact, one
of the best places to obtain used parts. He maintains quite the used
stock (he's always had what I needed), and is more knowledgeable than
any yard would be about your beloved Audi.

Since he isn't into shameless self-promotion, I thought I'd do it for
him. I know for a fact that many on these lists would stand behind my
own recommendation.
