Hi:
I have a 1998 2.8 A4 Avant which shows the ABS light and the brake light blinking. Analysis is that the ABS Aggregate (master control block under the hood) needs to be replaced. Are there any suggestions for a reasonable (price that is) place to buy certified, new, Audi parts on the East coast (preferably Maryland, but shipping is possible?). Cost of this part runs about $2100 at a dealer. Seems somewhat high!
Thanks for information.

I'm pretty sure you can get them straight from bosch(yellow pages in your area) but it wont save you much. I had the same problem and I went to my local Audi dealer who quoted me $3500 Aussie dollars for the part. Since the car wasn't worth that much ('96 2.6 Quattro) they were nice enough to knock it down to $2200 aussie. Aparently, this is a common thing for them to do when a new part is very expensive compared to the worth of the car. Maybe you could try this at the Audi dealers in the US - ask them how much for the whole thing including the installation - thats how i got it. When i just asked for the part - they quoted me the whole lot.

Worth a try.
