    I'd be interested in know the answer.

    I fitted a set of Meyle HD arms to my B5 when ADI was on (what date was that?) and done a couple of thousand on them so far all good.

    I fitted the useless cheap ones on my B5 which lasted a couple of months, then did the whole thing again using the Meyle ones from allgerman. The difference was light & day. I had them on the car for over a year before selling it and no problems at all, was about 18k miles. They should last longer than the originals (not saying much I know as the B5 seems to get through them faster than its tyres!). I also had 18" wheels which couldn't have helped

    Meyle HD has a 4 year warranty on them I think.
