Well "quality" is a relative term and always has been, especially with air cooled vw's. They were never porsches and were never meant to be. I currently have the 72 Beetle, 3 mk1 rabbits and a rabbit pickup so I am familiar with the vw parts houses and I didn't say you couldn't get parts for them but the days of the German quality oem parts for these babies are long gone. I don't remember the last time I bought a bosch part that was made in Germany. There are still a few bits here and there of course and the internet has helped expose the last few parts stashes available but these days you just have to hope for the Brazilian and Mexican assembly line standards to come up but I doubt that will happen. Not when the vast majority of the parts being manufactured are destined for trailer queens and not daily drivers and the manufacturers are aware of this.
