    I haven't myself mate but can't imagine they wouldn't be fantastic being KW. I have looked into getting one for our S3 but not got around to changing the ARB's yet.

    We can do the full kit, front & rear bars for £305 delivered if you're interested? (Both 2 way adjustable, front 26mm, rear 23mm)

    The tried, tested and favoured ARB is by H&R - great kit, I love it in mine!

    Not really sure to be honest bar mm diameter but I just went for H&R as I had their 25mm springs and based on the general opinion

    H&R for the S3 Quattro are:

    24mm front and 26mm rear

    Eibach are:

    26mm front and 22mm rear

    KW:

    26mm front 23 rear

    AFAIK you want a thicker rear ARB than front to try eliminate as much over steer as possible.

    Thicker bar on rear does not eliminate oversteer. For the contrary!
    It reduces understeer.
    AFAIK 2wd comes with thicker sway bar on the front because understeer is easyer to handle by unexperienced drivers. 4wd though come with thicker bar on the rear.

    I'd say go for the H&R on the S3, as mentioned tried and tested.

    Let me know if you need any prices.

    I too was very happy with the results from H&R so these would get my vote, you could try rear first at least this one is much easier to fit

    Please explain! A thicker bar on the rear does not make it slide on sharp turns?
    I had a 26/22 setup and when turning sharp the car kept going straight. Now I have 24mm on the rear and when taking the same turn the rear is sliding to the exterior of the curve. Isn't this oversteer?

    What?

    I made a mistake. I meant to say understeer and not over steer.

    I was jokingly blaming the fact that I am on night shift why I made the mistake.
