    thats useful, thanks for the detail. Might well be worth creating a new area on here to hold these updates so we have a record of what is back in limited production...? Andy, any thoughts?

          Those are almost all exclusively RS2 parts, I do hope they re manufacture all the ones they are considering as I need just about all of them. I didn't realise the steering wheel badge and the bumper grilles were NLA.

                  Lower door covers

                  The 4 lower door trima are still avaliable, about £100 each, the 2 trims for the front and the 2 for the back I believe are NLA the centre door trims are NLA, I believe these are mentioned in the guys E-Mail,

                  Last set of door trims I used I hade sure to clean and paint the steel channel in the back with etch primes and then cover them in waxoyl and remembered to renew the end caps as well, So far so good,

                  Cheers Paul

                    I'm wondering if they take requests? Would be nice to have a new set of cup holders for my car!

                      Hope the bellows for the rear diff actuator comes sooner rather than later. Mine perished and leaking oil over the drive after a run.... Mad they made this NLA along with the series 2 clutch master yet you can still get exhaust studs

                        Sadly nothing is being remanufactored ....................all old stock is being collected and sold on from a central point. How do I know..... I own 4 quattros Audi do not have the option to facilitate the remaking of old parts as most of the machinery has been sold or scrapped.

                          Well at least they are bothing to find the old stock thats sitting in dealers, its a start and if they see it selling quickly they might think about doing more.

                            As far as I'm aware, Audi Tradition is remanufacturing these parts from original suppliers and moulds. Their objective is far more than keeping the "obsolete parts" that they used to sell to third parties, before Audi Tradition was established; They are manufacturing original hard-to-find parts. Just as Porsche Classic and Mercedes Classic do. What was told by Sebastian Funk, but can't be confirmed in general for all products.

                            Having said that, I can imagine that they do RS2 parts, as there is still a lot of demand for them, also for "RS2-lookalikes". The prices are still reasonable compared to the original price. If they were to become limited/scarce, also Audi would try to get the maximum price out of them.
