Default Is TDIParts.com out of business?

TDIParts.com website is unavailable for the past couple of days ... did they go out of business?

My 5-speed tranny is on its way out (pilot bering or something) and want to get some parts and clutch stuff since the tranny will be apart ...

Anyone have any info on what happened to TDIParts.com?

That sucks. I really liked the name 'tdiparts'. Peter's a good guy, though, and I'll continue to buy from him under any name.

Agreed, IDParts isn't quite as catchy.

We're trying to think of a name for what the "ID" could stand for... right now its "independent diesel" - not incredibly exciting. Any ideas?

In my work lingo, ID stands for 'inside diameter', so that's what always comes to mind when I see 'idparts'.

What about 'tdiiparts.com' (turbo diesel internet parts) or 'tdiclub.com/parts' and you can pay the Forum a user fee to piggyback on out http?

IDParts seems like a identity theft ring out of Nigeria. Lose the name already. Get creative guys. If VWoA has a problem with using the Forum http as a host, we'll boycott any dealer aftersales services and products. TDi is an accepted acronym all over the world for Turbo Diesel Injection used by many manufacturers. Push back. We'll support you.

Just ordered a rear wheel bearing assy from ID parts for $60 or so..

I can see why VWoA doesn't like them too much, they wanted to gouge me $247.50 for the same part.

I found IDParts cumbersome to read from the very first email when I heard about it and I still do. Eye Dee Parts dot com just does not roll off the tongue or around it my mind nicely, sorry. It find it sad, TDIParts was such a great name. Turbo Diesel Parts dot com would be cool. OOps, it was taken by tdpARTS company. Oh well.

At least when you google TDIparts.com the first few hits are still IDParts.com for now.

I think it will likely stay that way, if anything it will become a link to the old domain on TDIclub. That is unless Time Warner & Co. decides to make a totaldramaislandparts.com. (search TDI)

VWoA are idiots. IndigoBlueWagon & Co. are awesome regardless of their domain name. Hell, IDparts.com sure beats typing the IP address in every time.
