Parts availability

I'm getting increasingly concerned about the lack of parts for our cars.

I'm currently on my second month of driving around with a cracked front bumper cover (daughter had an unfortunate encounter with the garage the day she got her driver's licence). Audi does not have a new one available and the breakers (Wolf, Shokan, ?) have not had anything come through their yards of late.

I recently replaced the charcoal canister and was told there are only three more available in North America.

I also had the parking brake cables replaced and they had to be shipped from Germany.

I like my '02 S8, but there comes a time when the lack of support from Volkswagen Group for their heritage products makes it impossible to keep it on the road. Mercedes-Benz is a lot better in supporting out-of-production models.
