BERLIN, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Germany's Cartel Office conducted searches at six automotive suppliers on suspicion they have been fixing prices since at least 2002 in the market for car-boot furnishings, the Bonn-based authority said on Wednesday.

Car-parts maker Magna International said its German operations have been searched as part of the probe and pledged to cooperate with antitrust authorities.
