    Stoke Audi on the forums quoted me about £65 I think a few months ago, £10 or so cheaper than my local Audi dealer. But either way, it's not an expensive mod.

    Did mine on Saturday.



    I bought the ARB, bushing, bushing bracket and bracet bolts. Used the original drop link bolt.

    Tricky part was getting the ARB out from behind the twin exhuasts (170TDI) I undid the two brackets holding the exhaust at the back and dropped it onto an axle stand - I reversed the car onto some ramps.

    Only took about an hour including a cuppa.

    There is only mm in it but then when you uprate an ARB for any vehicle the difference is only a few mm.

    It certainly feels flatter in corners and doesn't roll quite as much.

    how much did you pay for all this lot surely a bit more than the £65-75 quoted a few posts up?

    That's a front ARB for a B5 A4?
    The Front ARB on the B7 A4 and B7 RS4 are the same width if I remember correctly, so no need to change the front

    Had mine done at AMD Essex last week on my tfsi quattro. Parts cost £75 i think plus labour to fit. Didn't believe the hype that it would 'tranform' the car, but i was actually quite shocked at how much flatter it makes the car when cornering. Highly recommended!
