    There have been 3 racks, gen 1, 2 & 3, not sure of dates but you'd need part number to verify the gen version & possibly an adapter loom to use the newer versions, depending on whats fitted to your car now.

    Reliability for a start, think they discovered over time some flaws that needs resolving, as never known one large/expensive part to be stocked so much as a rack for an 8P.

    I installed a GEN3 rack and wiring loom to my 2007 S3 last month. Such a difference and I can finally enjoy driving my car again!!

    Think around £960 for rack, bolts and loom from Agnew Audi, Belfast and got £156 for my old rack when I returned it.
