    Is the 8L chassis based on one of the golf platforms, if so does anyone know which platform it's based on.

    it's definately mk4 golf based, as is the TT, Seat Leon, and skoda octavia.

    Most bits from the mk4 golf will fit the A3 too, wheels, brakes, seats, suspension, engine parts, exhaust.

    Half the stuff on my car is sourced second hand from ukmkivs, edition38, and seatcupra.net!
