Dieter Schmidt Lorenz - worth a visit!
If you have not been shopping from http://www.vw-teile.de/ yet - it is about time. Dieter is a true enthusiast himself and has found a unique and "priceless" niche in the hobby - he only deals with genuine, real-deal NOS Volkswagen parts.... and he has been doing it for 20 years with great success. His shelves and warehouse is full of the genuine blue boxes that you were told are rare, but here in the Hamburg shop is a commodity. An amazing selection that is always changing, depending on what he finds. We tested him on a few...."White knobs for Pre-A Porsche vent windows?" .... how many do you want? How about a horn button for a Barndoor? ...-I am sorry but the bow is a little worn, but here it is..... Right off the shelf!! Amazing. Be sure to check in on your next restoration.
What we really liked was the storefront and the amazing showroom... All old and unique sales-equipment, shelves and stuff... very very period correct and very nice. Thanks for the talk Dieter!
