    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, 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.
