    think it was Mr Auto Pieces Andre i got mine from. At least the picture looks familiar!

    I've still not had a chance to have a good close look over mine yet, they've been on the car maybe 5 months now and theres certainly no knocking, sounds a lot smoother than my brothers S4

    I have heard the odd squeak/creak noise when turning from lock to lock in the morning. Havent really heard it any other time, but first thing in the morning i need to do a three point turn to get out of my street and it quite often makes a squeaking noise then. I'm not sure if its the arms or something else, i've not looked at it too closely and it doesnt seem to make the noise after its been driven a bit doing the same manoever so it might be unrelated!

    These are the ones I got from Andre in Germany, which include the TRE's as well (which those above have omitted).

    You get all new bolts & nuts, but you don't get the bolts for the top arms where they fit the strut for some reason which isn't a problem as long as you realise. I didn't so ended up using the new drop link bolts (by mistake) instead on the first side I did.
    Very fast delivery direct from Germany, bargain. The whole kit cost the same as having just one control arm replaced by my local VAG specialist.

    Don't use Bennets as they use Quinten Hazel and they are rubbish. Replaced 3 arms on my various cars and without fail within 6 months of the arm being fitted it starts creaking. My current A4 has just started to creak and it's the 5 month old arm that's the offending article.

    Just want to rip the whole lot off and replace it with new.
