    Yesterday I set to work on fitting my bargain S3/TT steering rack to my A3.
    To be honest, it wasnt too difficult, but can you imagine undoing some bolts that have clearly been on the car since it left the factory, I feel like i've had a massive session in the gym today! Also the track rod ends can be a right pita!!
    Anyway...got the new rack on and WOW! what a difference, the car feels pretty similar at low speeds and parking but when being used "properly" the quicker rack is superb and you can really connect with the road.
    I couldnt recommend this mod enough, you can pick up a 2nd hand rack off of ebay from £50-100 and a few hours of your time, cant wait to properly test it out at Castle Combe next month :)

    I knew you'd like it mate! Feels SO much nicer doesn't it?

    Wish I could fit one on the daily, it feels
    Rubbish after driving the track car
