    I would probably look at second hand... from what i hear the rear diff/ haldex unit is quite complex.
    Should be a few TT's breaking

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    I've always found asking for TT parts is cheaper than S3 parts when it comes to breakers, Even though there the same part and code......
