Seeking parts source

The Import Parts Specialists shop is local to me here in Boise, although I
don't get out there as much as I used to because they moved out of downtown,
are no longer open on Saturdays, and I have a significantly newer Audi now
that doesn't need many parts as yet. Good folks though, Rick, Andy and
Trish. Of course they are likely a front end for Worldpac or similar
wholesaler (website runs a Sophio package that doesn't look like the
standard Worldpac parts picker to me). 4kq door handles run about $20 there.
