    I too have had this squeak develop since having new rear springs fitted, I can only think its one of the bushes. Im upgrading the whole lot soon so fingers crossed the squeak will go away once the uprated springs, dampers ARBs etc are fitted.

    Sounds like its the ARB bushes, very common on the A/S3 especilly on the front.

    However if you check closely, just make sure the borrowers haven't moved into your boot and are bonking on their squeaky bed ;)

    Yeah sounds like bushes - mines been like it for a few months - but seeing as I'm going to do the suspension anyway I've left it - the rear ARBs are a bit of a biatch by all accounts, so I'll be getting that and bushes done for me by someone else!!
