    Has anyone ever fitted fully polys to an S3??? Had a few cars that I've fitted them too, and some they have worked, and some took away the feel of the car... So if you have them, post up some results....

    Apparently polybushes dont work very well on the wishbones.
    They pull out over time.
    I have heard a rumor that TT bushes are slightly stiffer than s3 ones.

    Tim, did you tighten it correctly? Mines been on 12 months and is fine, improved the handling of the car no ends, felt better then OEM tbh.

    I bought my s3 of Mike on here and its fully polybushed and it is overkill considering it has uprated dampers and adjustable roll /tie bars etc ....it made the car very "choppy" to drive on the back roads were i live so i removed the poly bushes up front and fitted stock "tt" solid rubber bushes,its made the car allot better to drive and it handles just as good!


    I would personally just do the rear polybushed and the front standard bar the tt void free ones and spend the money on decent roll bars etc.
