I know that Napa supposedly carries parts there that we can use on our Audi's (Audi specific products). Maybe this thread can serve to be a reference for those who have a Napa nearby but do not want to order online.

ive seen some carry G12 antifreeze. thermostats are readily availble. coolant temp sensors can be ordered thru them. our specific O2 sensors can be ordered or they have universal splice in type in stock normally.

we (i work at the local NAPA) also have a full import line that is pretty much based on the audi/vw dealers part numbering system, so if you have the part number from the dealer as to what you are looking for, it MAY go right into our computer system...if not, it SHOULD cross over to this import specific line that we can now get our hands on, Altrom to be correct.

as a matter of fact, i believe if you google Altrom, you can go to their website and look the parts up directly, and the part numbers will be right there. some stores carry alot more of the line then others, but its available to all of them.

I have a pre-facelift '99 and they no longer carry the ABS speed sensor. My impression after talking with the parts guy was they may be offering fewer parts on the older B5's.

[o_o] I was hoping it would have been cheaper. MJM Autohaus sells them for $17.50 + ~$5-7 shipping.

In my exerience with various NAPA stores in my area, the parts are extremly over priced when I've sourced parts for my Audi, VW and Subaru. Often, they are just as or nearly as expensive as the respective local dealership prices. Who wants to pay those prices for non-OEM parts?

The one down the road from the shop I used to work at carried 3-4 full sets of complete control arm and tie-rod kits (Febi too!).

NTM other goodies like seals and such.

It was still cheaper to order them and attempt to keep them in stock at the shop. We went through CarQuest's online deal that I can't remember the name of anymore.
