    Front RS4 ARB ON A 2.0 TDI ,Is it worth it?

    Im fitting a rear RS4 arb to my b7 avant and wondered if the front one is worth upgrading as well to a RS4 version .Is there alot of difference and will it fit?

    On previous threads, people in the know have said the front bar is the same on all the B7 models, including the RS.
    How much did you pay for the rear?

    Is there a significant difference with the RS4 ARB?

    Did you buy that one I gave you the details for Jamie? The front ARB is the same size so not worth bothering with.

    Dont bother with the front one, just do the rear. It totally transforms the way the car corners.

    Around a 2mm increase in size is equal to c.50% increase in stiffness IIRC, so quite a difference.

    Stock rear ARB's are:
    16mm - SE
    18mm - S Line / Sport
    20mm - S4
    22mm - RS4

    So the difference from SE to RS4 is massive. Had this on my old B6 and made a huge difference to the handling and body roll. A very cost effective mod. As itsmeagain said, drop Pjmspeedya PM and he'll sort you out.

    I have just fitted my RS4 rear ARB, and it made a HUGE difference to the feel of the car, I fitted it whilst at the Nurburgring, so was able to get a lap or 2 in before and after fitting, and like I said the difference was massive, rear end felt alot more stable and the car felt like it turned in alot nicer, deffiantly worth the 80 or so for the kit!
