    By sway bars, I'm guessing you mean Anti Roll Bars(ARBs) right?

    What exactly are you looking for? If it's an after market set up you are looking at, it just looks the same as standard but different colour maybe?

    i am referring to these

    or

    yes, also known as Anti Roll Bars.

    I am looking for the H&R ones, or any other ones which will be fitted after-market.

    I have a custom exhaust, with a very straight pipe, and I want to know if it interferes with the rear swaybar/ Anti Roll Bar.


    So, pretty much searching for a picture from underneath an S3 8L with aftermarket (H&R or any other type) swaybars/ Anti Roll Bars installed.

    thank you for your answers.

    Now if you had said that in the first place lol...

    the rear ARB is well up out the way above the heat shielding and you should have no probs... makes no odds if fitting after market ones either..

    std exhaust


    3" exhaust..

    Thought I recognised the user name... I currently have std ARB's on mine but planning to use R32 ones when I get around to it... plenty of threads on here about R32 ARB's and there are some performance related threads in the FAQ sticky you should read..

    was it hard to fit them? seems very difficult..to take it out and to pass it through all those pipes and small spaces...

    the R32 ones are thicker or? what is the diff between H&R and R32 standard?

    do you have the codes for these? the H&R and around 500euros the set of two..

    thank you very much for the replies.

    Rear ARB isnt hard to do, just need to drop the exhaust down remove and refit, front requires a bit more work, i think it can be done without removing the subframe but easy to do with the sub frame dropped.
