Online parts shops

  • VW Heritage - UK based seller, wide range of parts for many VWs.
  • Mk1 Autohaus - US based seller, general good range of parts.
  • Crazy Quiff's - UK based, great knowledge, worth seeing if you can request or track down parts.
  • Rock Auto - US based, large spares wholesaler, large range of parts (for many cars).
  • VWGolf1 - UK based store, good general range of parts.
  • B and B Components - UK based, eBay store, wide range of parts for many cars.
  • Amazon - Ok for lots of basic parts shared between models, including interior parts, switches, etc.

I used to include eBay on this list, and it's still good for some things, but to be honest sellers seem to include tags on their products for a variety of cars, inlcuding ones that the product won't actually fit. This makes searching for the right part a real pain.
