If you want genuine VAG parts, with less of the dealer prices, try these guys..

http://www.thetradepartsspecialists.co.uk/

It's solely for the VAG group and run by professionals, not the usual clueless dealer staff..

They only sell the same genuine OEM parts that the dealers do, but at a reduced cost.

I know what you're thinking, it says "Trade" but despite what the title of the site is called, they WILL sell to the public.. Now when you visit the site, you'll see it asks you to sign up, this ISN'T necessary.. They have branches all over the country and there is a postcode checker on the site to help find your nearest dealer, then all you need to do is walk in with the part numbers and you should receive around 20% discount on dealer prices.. For genuine parts that's not bad!!

Would love the mods to add this as a pinned topic to the tutorials and guides section, so everyone has a one stop link instead of searching over and over..

Hope this helps..

and its not 100% that you will get a 20% saving on all parts. but still works out cheaper than stealer prices

Well my mate goes often and he says he's never been refused a sale, so that's good.. But yeah i suppose as it's trade based, then luck might have something to do with it.. He's got one of those trusting faces so he's alright..

No, i was chatting with my mate last night, and for some reason we got onto parts and he said that's where he goes for them.. He just said don't buy from the dealers again, use these guys!

My dealers parts department turned into TPS some time ago. Same staff, same discount, same everything.
In fact there is not 1 difference apart from the top of the headed paper receipts.
Even the registered office, funnily enough, has the same addr as VW UK lol
