I just get it all from my local VW or Audi dealer. Sometimes I get a discount, sometimes I don't.

You can get oil and filters from Eurocarparts which are identical to OEM parts. Also they sell spark plugs (NGK BKR7EIX) which are the ones to get.

DV and cam follower I would only get from VW.

Now TPS are not selling to the public, people like RPS will be extra busy, and may take longer to process orders/quotes.

So is RPS a dealer trying to fill the gap left by tps no longer selling to the public?

RPS is basically the parts manager from Worcester of one of the Listers group, selling genuine parts to the public, through Facebook at discounted prices.  https://www.facebook.com/retailpartsspecialists/

 He has a Linkedin profile and his e mail is a Listers one.

I emailed Michael on Michael.Hindle@listers.co.uk - make sure you add "RPS Online Quote" in the subject line to get the RPS pricing.

I suggest your local dealer if that is your experience of pattern parts.  Or, AKS Tuning sell OEM service parts, and their mail order service is excellent.

I wouldn't expect a timely service from companies who use Fecesbook as a sales outlet.

I asked my local garage for their TPS account no.  :evilgrin: and I’ve been using it ever since.

Maybe worth asking a local garage around you for theirs. Or get a garage to order parts if they won’t give you their acc no.

Full mann filters service kit (oil, air, cabin (carbon activated), fuel) currently on eurocarparts for mk5 gti works out £45.

Local dealer just quoted me £92 for the same 4 "VW" filters.

Mann is a high quality OEM manufacturer, never had any problems with anything made by them?

Add to that 4 NGK spark plugs from Awesome GTI for £38 and 5L of Quantum 5W-40 from eBay for £20 and you've got yourself a very cheap full service.

Not everybody pays full retail for dealer parts though  :smiley:

VW change OEM suppliers regularly.  I prefer to stick with the most up-to-date stuff personally, but what ever works for you.  It's not always about doing things as cheaply as possible, but the best quality possible.

I agree about it being more about quality than cost totally. That’s why I only buy parts from manufacturers I know are proven in terms of quality.

If you wanted to go cheap, ECP sell parts from companies I’ve never heard of, and you could probably get the service kit down significantly in comparison with the Mann stuff.

But I know Mann are an oem supplier for various German cars and make good stuff that also represents good value for money. I will not pay VW or bmw or anyone else a premium to Re-box things for me when I don’t have to
