    S3 8P Vibration from rear

    Got a 2007 S3 and have got a vibration which feels like its coming from the rear. Have had the wheels balanced,but it is still there. I can feel it through the base of the seat and also armrest/handbrake area.Are these models common for the rear propshaft dampers going.If so are they available to be purchased on there own (not as a complete propshaft). cheers

    Your alloy hasn't warped has it?

    They aren't the strongest.
