    According to the Haynes manual (Yes, I have one... :P) the outer races form part of the rear hub so replaced as a complete unit hence the price difference...

    Note this is for a FWD A3 and not quattros...

    Haynes suggests you will need a pullet to remove the old hub and bearing race from the stub axle...
