[urq] Why can't Audi do this for the Urq??

Or 3.0 CSL parts?  Well said, Bruce, unfortunately.

I wonder whether the Japanese are proving to be any better at this.  Not too long ago I 
could buy whatever weird buts I needed from the dealer for an '88 Mazda 323 GTX (turbo awd 
hatch, *maybe* a few thousand built).  I wonder how hard it will be to buy NSX parts from 
Honda in a few more years.

Ingo, I'm willing to bet 90% or more of the Urq parts are still available (if you count 
nuts, bolts and washers). The issue is which parts are in the 10% which are unavailable. 
Further, there were over 330,000 BMW 2002's produced (7 years) which far exceed the 
limited production of the Urq at around 11,000 copies (11 years). From a manufacturer's 
economic point of view, this is apples and oranges. From a personal point of view, I share 
your frustration and realize my factory original car will ultimately be compromised. I 
wonder how many M1 parts are available.
