Well I'm not at all pleased. I paid $62 more for the enhanced kit including shipping that I had to pay for. Kinda sucks. Thanks for overcharging me Blau.

I think we should both be credited the amount of price difference. After all it was me and you who basically gave them more sales by saying how good the kit was and reccomending them. I was also sent a wrong part in mine. I suggest if they want the same good praise they PM me with a generous refund for the change in price.

Some of us did not get the money we have by getting "sixty-two-dollared" to death.

Also, since I bought my A8L used in late 2005, I had hundreds of thousands of dollars in investments vaporize. Money market funds that now pay 1/10th of a percent aren't helping.

I bought my car with after tax earnings, Not any sort of company car or lease or anything like that which I believe a large percentage of A8's are.

I'll give you an example about the "wealthy"; My son has a small business that requires us to go to people's homes. He charges $25 for the service that typically takes 20-40 minutes. We do this at homes that are worth $100k to ones that are worth 1M which were worth 2M during the housing peak. When we're done and it's time to collect, the owners of the high end homes never, ever give him a tip. The ones on the lower quarter of the scale typically give a $5 tip and a few give a $10 tip.

It has been a very valuable lesson my son has learned. My late dad (a carpenter that I did side jobs with when I was a kid) taught me this when we needed to collect $6.93 for some supplies after doing a job. This was at a home in a well to do area in the early-mid '70's. The home owner had a brand new (just came out) 1st generation Seville in their circle driveway. When we went to collect, my dad said to me "watch this closely". We gave the guy the receipt from the hardware store for $6.93, do you think he gave us seven bucks? He gave my dad six bucks and pulled coins from his pocket and then had his wife open her purse for a dime and three pennies. A very important lesson I learned as a young kid.

And no, we do not take the A8 to do these jobs, we use out beat up '97 Chevy Venture rust bucket.

You must be an idiot if you don't care about your money. A penny is a penny. All adds up my friend; regardless I work hard for every penny, and always get the cheapest price.

This post has nothing to do with Blauparts; as they are a great company and do take care of their customers.

Why are you calling me an idiot? Someone who really watched their money and was concerned would email or call the vendor rather than bitch about it on a public forum.

I am new to this forum and come here to learn about the car and ask advice. It is obvious that not everyone does the same.

Be fair to the OP and contact them if you have an issue.

Satch0922, welcome to the Audi Forum. I'm quite sure I speak for everyone when I say that this is one of the Top if not the Best Audi Forum on the Net, but if you are here to learn and ask questions then by all mean stick to that. But, when you Jump Off on Thread with Comments that Stir Up the Nest you get a Reputation of a "Pouncer" who sits in waiting because you have nothing Constructive To Say!

I beleive that a lot of us including you my friend have something to Add. It is when you constantly Subtract in various Threads that we will start to Sting. The last thing you want here is to have a problem and get totally ignored. Just about everything we talk about is of Value to someone and I'm sure the Majority of us don't want to Fight with anyone including you. So, let's play nice! Once again welcome to AF. Laters,

Thanks Williebone. I am all about playing nice, the very reason I did not call anyone
on this board an "idiot".

I have found there are a few "car guys" on this board and there are a few that chime in with misinformation that make it painfully obvious that they know nothing about an automobile. In any public forum people are free to post, one just has to sort through the filler to find the accurate information.

Every once in a while I feel compelled to point out the obvious though as I did in this thread earlier. Prices of any product are based on supply and demand. Economics 101. It just seemed unfair to pounce on the OP about the "offer" that was posted here. What was paid by customers in the past must have been a fair price or they would not have made the purchase?

If nothing else, my post will bump the thread and maybe the OP will get some additional customers.

Rather than pouncing it was simply announcing that me and bailey didn't expect it to drop right after us buying it. Although blau fixed that perfectly for us and made everything right. And by no means anyone that owns an audi is an idiot ! I was meaning people in general who don't watch their money not you sir
