    Its a bit of a starnge question with no context... wh not just buy the right part?

    Generally speaking they 'should' be the same part... IIRC I have looked into replacing mine before but asked for S3 ones... there are cheaper versions on eBay for around 15 quid but the ones to get are the 30/35 quid ones as they are a better quality..

    They are around 50/60 quid IIRC from a dealer

    Humm... as far as I am aware they should be the same part... the OEM part number is 1J0 498 625 iirc

    ETKA suggests s3's after 2001 use a different bearing and hub. The 1J0 number above appears to fit earlier S3's and most A3's

    My experience with bearings says to use branded ones, FAG, Timken, SKF etc.

    Fit cheap tat and you'll be doing it again soon!
