does anyone know if they are the same driveshafts? or if they fit both cars...
NSF S3 driveshaft will fit an a3 if its fitted with the 6 speed box. Other than that, no. This is presuming we're not talking about an a3 Quattro though.
no.. just a front wheel drive a3.. and its only 5 speed..
so thanks for the info.
I got a set of s3 ones if interested
will S3 driveshafts (passenger side) actually fit a 8l A3?
5 speed are not interchangeable with 6 speed.
no, they won't fit mate.
Also, what age is your car?
Pre July 98 will have 100mm flanges and ball / cage CV's, post july 98 will have 108mm tri roller inner joints.
They did a very mild facelift in July 98 which included the revised door handles, slightly different shifter mech, and I believe this is when the CV's where changed as well.
