Well they phoned me back, can get it and gave a price.

Audi tradition quote €108 plus delivery and VAT for what I want. Comes to about £140 delivered in the UK.
BUT you can't buy from them as payment is broken....
Audi have quoted me £218 if they get it for me. Even the parts guy was shocked.

I've asked them to go back to AT and ask them to check it's the right part and compare to the web site price, then email me their explanation.

Maybe Audi are just adding their cut as well. Have you contacted AT to ask if they can take payment over the phone? Might be worth a try.

I've already emailed AT to ask how to buy given the broken web site; awaiting a response.
I'm not around much for a while now so just waiting to see what the local Audi dealer finds out.

The Germans are particularly antiquated with their banking systems - they barely do online transactions. From memory I paid via IBAN when I had my cats refurbished, but you’d expect Audi to have a process in place. You’d expect them to be able to issue an invoice and for you to make a transfer to pay that....

No response from Audi in either the UK or Germany while I've been sunning myself in Greece so it's try the alternatives as they are competitive.
In the end I've just placed an order at online-teile, the price including delivery is ever so slightly less than Audi Tradition and they seem to have stock.

Let's see if that turns out to be correct and the part (for my sons S4) arrives next week. Fingers crossed.

Hmmm, not going so well. They DON'T actually have stock and have to buy from Audi Tradition.
That adds a time delay and an inevitable handling charge, fortunately that's a lot less than the "Audi Tax" applied going via the local dealer.

Hopefully as they are a big multibrand parts supplier in Germany they will have an account with AT so there will be no payment issues.

They say they ordered from Audi Tradition yesterday and I've also paid the handling charge (easy enough via PayPal). Their order status has also been updated to "The goods are expected soon" so I'm hopeful again.

If this works, they (online-teile) may be a useful alternative route into the "broken" Audi Tradition system as their delivery costs to UK are slightly lower, pretty much offsetting the handling charge and 2-step delivery.

Just a little update. Online-teile ordered from Audi Tradition last Monday.
They received the part on Friday (in line with their management of my expectations) and have forwarded it on, supplying a tracking reference.

It was collected from them by DPD Friday evening and is currently still in Germany. DPD are usually pretty quick.

My order arrived today and is correct.
Meanwhile the Audi Tradition shop seems to have vanished...….

Well it has reappeared and looks much the same, maybe a few tiny cosmetic changes?
But if you try to buy (choosing Credit Card and entering full details) you still get the same message about PayPal not being accepted.
