    I know it is traditionally wrong to assume things Paul, but I must admit, I had assumed that you would be right :laugh:

    My 2003 S3 is experiencing a similar issue. On full lock especially when cold i hear really loud noises from turning. My mechanic thinks its the haldex

    He advised me that a 2nd hand haldex unit off a TT is around $1800 AUS.

    I am assuming I have the same problem as Pabl0

    Where did you get a unit from at that price? Am I severely getting ripped?

    Over here a second hand controller is anything from £50-£150 and without translating the currency I'd say yes.

    Does the rear wheel lock when you do tight turns? Usually the inside wheel of the turn?

    sounds like it's cheaper to buy here and have it sent !
    maybe ?

    But be warned, many dodgy units out there as it's a fairly common issue.
