    Aye, about 70 quid for a rear sensor! The back hubs on quatty have the ABS ring inside the hub andI think a different set up due to the EDL control for the rear brakes. I believe the front sensors are the same as long as the FWD car in question has EDL for the front as the quatty has it for all 4 corners, I think.... anybody? Siena?

    i dont think its related to EDL, i think the front sensors will all be the same (although i seem to recall a chassis number change, so theres probably early and late sensors)

    rears are presumably different because they mount differently to the fwd cars

    Aye, I can 2nd that. 2 on order. Popping in to Edinburgh Audi tomorrow to donate yet another arm to my ongoing B5 restoration. To date I have parted with 5 arms, 3 legs, 4 first born childs 84 gold teeth and the equivelant GDP of a small non-combatant south american country. Hopefully everything will work 100% once they're on the car and I clear all the fault codes. I'm fully expecting the ole' girl to sail through the MOT as if it were her first!!

    I was on to Eurocarparts about this... they could only help out by getting direct from bosch at silly prices.. I did try for a group buy but nae joy! Siena will help you out mate.

    I think, if the hoss has been looked after then it should be ok... Apart from the ABS, rear wiper and bit's o' rust, all that has gone wrong with mine is down to neglect or honest wear and tear. My initial concerns about the drive train (being 4x4), engine or engine management have been unfounded. If I had a couple of grand to really sort it out, most of which being cosmetic, I don't see why stinky couldn't run for another 241000 miles... providing maintanence was adheard to.
