    The long arm? looks like your trailing arm your talking about.

    How'd you manage you bend it?

    part numbers seem the same between A3 & convertable so I'd say yes.

    I would also check the other suspension arms, my brother hit a kerb in my a3. Have a close look at the lower suspension arm ( the one the spring sits in) this arm has section in which is ment to buckle with the result if impact
