    OK, going off of adjturbo's problems with fitting an S3 Strut Brace to his A3 TS. What are the differences between the FWD and Quattro front suspension?? I had always assumed that the FRONT was identical, and that for obvious reasons, the rear was different.

    Does anyone know??

    OK, so now we've got an S3 that's having problems??

    So, does anyone know if pre-1999 A3's had the hydraulic bonnet lift??

    Yes they did, mine is a 98 1.8TS and it has a hydraulic lifter on the bonnet.

    Thanks for the reply Si, the problem's been solved (sort of) the Strut Bar in question is in all actuality, that from a TT, NOT an S3. We're still trying to figure out where the numbers got mixed but THAT'S why it wouldn't fit /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
