    Audi A3 8L chassis??

    A mechanic told me that our A3 chassis is derived from the old MkIII Golf, is this true?

    I would have thought it would be the MIV, but then again the A3 does predate the MkIV by a year or two.

    Cheers
    Carlos

    It's certainly the same platform as the Mk IV Golf - many of the parts are identical. Not sure how closely related it is to the Mk III - not very I wouldn't have thought.

    Its very closely related to the Mk3...which is related to the Mk2 which is related to the Mk1! The fwd chassis has changed VERY little! Many parts are interchangeable
