    Are you sure it only happens when turning left or right.How many miles has the car done ?

    I just had all my wishbone and anti rollbar bushes replaced because my A3 was knocking from the front.Its perfect now.

    My guess is CV joints but could be track rod ends.

    I do but get a 2nd opinion before you shell out any cash if doing yourself.
