Hey guys! Need to order a lot of used pieces from ebay and wondering what is the best way to check that everything will fit. Found this auto parts catalog data but not sure how legit is it. Any experience to share? Thanks

There is no way of being 100% accurate unless you order all the parts new from VW with the sticker on using the cars VIN and even then mistakes get made. Even if you know the part number you need it may not be the one shown on the part as VAG have numbers for internal use that look just like their part numbers which is bloody annoying. Also one part can have many different part number changes over the period off use. I have completely given up on used parts due to them being faulty, wrong, damaged, not as described and even in some cases being sold for more than they cost new.
