    Depends on the condition of yours really and the mileage thats been put through them if they`re the originals. Not everyone does it but then if you wanted to freshen up everything then you could do them.

    s3gazz: Just out of interest what did you pay for your R32 arb? Been offered one but not sure what a decent price is second hand.

    Let me know if it makes a difference s3gazz, so if I do get one I won't be fitting it for some time.

    Nah only one type of 19mm bar on ETKA. There are thinner bars obviously for the lesser models but not listed under the R32. PR code is 0BU to determin its the 19mm R32

    Jason, are the rear drop links different between Golf4 R32 and 8L S3?

    Nope they`re the same.

    They do list a "heavy duty" drop link. Listed for both models along side the standard one. Unsure what the difference would be, perhaps a thicker link or something.

    That's good to know, I have some brand new drop links ready for my S3, I was going to go R32 ARB whilst I'm at it, so this will save me a few quid.

    Little or no effect on ride, better handling for sure.

    No performance mods at all. I do plan on getting it mapped in the near future though. I have so far focused on comfort mods like HID's, ambient lighting, mk4 golf flat wipers etc.

    The rear ARB really stiffens the rear which largely reduces roll. It's most apparent when quickly changing lanes on motorways, or even cornering in general. I noticed it immediately.
