    The rs4 will fit nicely but it will be stiffer...the rear will be higher though.

    if its just the shocks you fit, the ride height wont change.

DO YOU THINK THE PERSON DOING THE MOT HAD BEEN BIG FEET GIVING PLENTY OF WELLY AND THE BELT GOSE

    The alternator belt is not inside the timing cover, its external, and also drives the PAS, and possibly the AC compressor too.

    If the PAS is still working, the belt is fine.

    The engine has to be revved to the governor as part of the MOT test, but that shouldnt really affect anything.

    The bumper needs to come off for the alternator and the lock carrier needs pulling forward in order to access the bolts wich holds it on the block. Not a really difficult job but time consuming...allow 2-3 hours for removal and refitting. Check all the aux. pulleys for noise and play while you there...
