It just might be. The ignition switch on the wife's 95 A6 was replaced a 
little over a year ago with a switch that was sourced from a VW dealer and 
it's held up fine. My son had to replace the ignition switch in his 87 5ktq 
after only 6 months. He had gotten the original replacement from Bimmerparts 
and the second one is from Autohaus. I think it's been in there for a few 
months now.
