    Hi Sean,

    If you have had your ABS light on since you bought the car then I would be very surprised if your ABS is working at all to be honest. Even says so in your S3 handbook IIRC. I had a lot of problems with the ABS module a couple of years ago....and the garage I used at the time ended up sending it away to get rebuild. Unfortunately mine was beyond repair though and had to get a new unit installed. Also I'm almost certain that if your ABS light is on whilst it is MOT'd then it would fail.

    Yeah i know that! It seem to work, when emergency stopping there's no skidding, just pulls up nicely! Theres no funny feelings or hidden noises going on! might be missing summit? How much did it cost you in the end? As need to get it tickled of my never ending to do list..
