Default 2000 A8- new to me- pics

I just got a 2000 Audi A8. What really attracted me to this particular one was the interior color. The outside is some sort of Charcoal metallic and the interior is a chocolate brown with a peanut butter colored seats that are in fantasic condition. I am sure along the way I will have a million questions that I haven't been able to find the answer to by searching but I was wondering where I might be able to get new housings and bulbs for the fog lights below as well as the passengers side "grate thing"- both lenses were cracked and I need new bulbs as well. I would hate to see the price of these items at the dealerName:  Ausifront2_zps575b4c29.png

AudiUSAparts - an actual dealer but FAR better prices than anywhere else
ECStuning
Partsgeek

Those are the top 3 most of us use.
There are others and someone else may chime in, but this board isn't heavily posted on in comparison to the other models.

JimEllisAudiParts, also a dealer has part numbers on their website.
You won't find very much aftermarket for these vehicles.

nice find- i dont know if i've seen that generation with that color leather.

if you're ok with used parts (for the foglight grill or other small things) try shokan coach works.

Thanks guys, those sites helped out alot.
I will also pay this forward as I think it is something, if not taken care of, could have a bad result on the cars electronics...
I noticed that the base of the windshield under the hood was full of water, I found this odd, vacuum it all out and cleaned it up (I am a detailer with a shop here in NH). I was then checking the fuses down on the passengers side kick panel to see what my steering wheel tilt isn't working and noticed a few drips under the floor mat, not soaked by any means but I could see some moisture.
I was searching last night and came across this guys site with a bunch of "fixes" for things and it seems that the drain tubes, both at the base of the windshield as well as the AC evaporater drain tubes get clogged up and prevent draining.
I will take care of it today...
