    needed part

    Can I say this in English?
    Unfortunately/I'm afraid, we don't have the urgent needed part for your car in stock. Shall we order it?
    Unfortunately/I'm afraid, we don't have the urgent needed part for your car in stock at all. Shall we order it right now?

    Re: needed part

    Urgent is an adjective. The adverb you need is urgently.

    You can't have a part partially in stock - it's either there or it isn't.

    Should we order it is OK, with or without right now.

    Re: needed part

    Then I assume the following sentence is also false.
    Should we order it immediately/at once?

    But how can I express myself in English, when I'd like to order something as soon as possible?

    Re: needed part

    "Should we order it immediately/at once" is correct.

    You could use any of the following for your situation. There are of course other options.

    I'd like to order it immediately.
    Could I order that right away, please?
    Please go ahead and order it right away.
    Let's go ahead and order it now, please.
    I think I'll go ahead and get that ordered now, please.

    See my correction above. False means "not true", not "incorrect".

    Re: needed part

    You need a comma after 'Unfortunately' but no comma after 'I'm afraid'.
