    Rear powerflex bushes are okay for the S3 just about (not A3), due to operating in one plane.
    Front polybushes are a big no no. Worst thing you can fit.

    If you swapped to the early bushes and defcon inserts I'm sure you would notice the difference.

    Powerflex on mine were great to start off with but went loose within a month or two. The stuff isn't the right choice of material for the movements it needs to go through on some audi bush applications.
