    get one from a TT quattro as there are WAY more of them listed on than for the S3.
    I got mine for 95 delivered (c/wtrack rods and ends) and it is pristine.

    Yep, same as Ross. Got one from an Audi TT 225 (make sure it's the 225 engine) and got it fitted for around 140 labour. Total cost was just under 235. Not too bad considering it will cost 's for just the rack alone from Audi.

    also mate when you get your old one out, well worth sending it for a recondition and selling it on. very likely you will recoup your buying and fitting costs. I googled and phoned around for power steering rack overhaul and got quotes as low as about 115 and that is delivered.
