    The only one that will work is the forge side mount.

    APR do one for the golf4, and ABD do one for the Golf4... Stuart has the ABD FMIC on his A so we know for sure it fits.

    Alternatively, if your car is DBW, get a inlet manifold from a S3/TT, and then get the FMIC from star performance (as ESS_THREE (Glen) Has). Just because nobody make one especially for the A3, doesnt mean it cant be done. Just improvise /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    One thing to consider tho when fitting a FMIC to a 1.8T that doesnt have a K04, is that lag will inevitably be increased due to the considerably longer intake tract.
