    Breaking Audi S3 - Which parts do you suggest ???

    A mate of mine has stacked the front end of his S3, and has decided to break it. Its a 2003 facelift s3, 210bhp. Headlights and front bumpers are ****ed.

    Im after some suggestions on the best parts to have off of him for my S3, commonly failing parts and good things to keep hold of.

    Any help would be great, cheers

    Everything! haha

    Depends on the mileage of your S3 as well fella and what you have replaced/maintained regularly on your car.

    Everyone changes/upgrades things at different stages dude so not sure what your particular S3 would need in the long run is what I'm trying to say.

    My gearbox went bang after I fitted a SMF...my haldex is also a bit tired....then there's a few interior parts I wouldn't mind replacing just because of the odd scuff.
