    just a quickie! I want a new setup for my 1.8t sport, will a mk4 setup work? I'm sure it'll fit but will the spring and damping rates be right?


    Cheers

    nothing to complain yet. :)

    the adjustable dampers are excellent and the settings on them do make a difference :)

    The original statement is correct the FWD mk4 golf suspension will fit a FWD A3.

    The FWD mk4 golf will NOT fit an A3 Quattro or an S3

    The 4Motion mk4 golf will fit an A3 Quattro but will NOT fit a FWD A3
