    I dont think that it is an automatic assumptionthat S3 stuff will fit. Check carefully as I know that my rear brakes (TDi Q), are common to an Audi TT, not S3 or A3 1.8tQ.

    Coming back to Audi with an A3 Tdi Sportback Quattro... but the 220bhp T5 was epic....

    Engine wise, you need to look at 1.8T stuff and not S3. The 1.8T Quattro engine has a single intercooler with the inlet manifold on the same side as a normal 1.8T sport, the S3 has twin side mount intercoolers with the inlet rotated 180 degrees. Transmission wise, the 4wd system is pretty much the same, but the S3 runs a wider track with different front struts that allows for little camber adjustment, not too sure about the rear suspension differences though.
