    Very good for the A3 1.8T engines. I have used one on my old car, and many people on here are using them with no complaints.

    Bit small for the S3 though to be honest, so depends on what you are planning to fit it to.

    Yeah, I did my cooler for cheap to be fair, you've just got to shop around for the cooler, and source the hoses yourself.

    I wouldn't buy the Forge ones as I think they are obscenely expensive for what they are.

    Not sure if you've seen this: http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthr...C-(image-heavy) but I would certainly have a look.

    I think it was just under 250, sourcing all the pipes and parts needed from ebay.

    Cheers for the help guys, been doing some reaserch. What is the main difference between the Ah fab one , and say a cheaper ebay job ?. Other than build quality is it going to make any difference to air cooling ?.

    yup another vote for the AH fabs one, not much more expensive and probably easier to fit...with better testomonials than most coolers out there
