    I am in the process of trying to uprate my S3 Anti-Roll Bars to those from the Golf R32, and have become very confused /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif. I have priced Parts from my local VW Dealer, Awesome GTi, and Vag Parts. I have quoted part No's and I have a huge variation in price.

    The Part Nos I believe are as follows:
    R32 Front 23mm ARB - 1J0 411 305 AF
    R32 Rear 19mm ARB - 1J0 511 409 K
    23mm Powerflex Poly Bushes - PFF85-411-23
    19mm Neuspeed Bushes with Grease Retaining Design

    Firstly can anyone confirm I am looking for the correct parts?

    Secondly I have listed the prices I have been quoted and I believe there must be some mistake somewhere as there is a huge variation.

    Vag Parts - 23mm ARB - £40.03 + vat
    19mm ARB - £50.77 + vat
    P/flex bushes - £25.95 +vat
    Do not stock Neuspeed bushes.

    Awesome GTi - 22/25mm Neuspeed ARB £145 + vat
    19mm Neuspeed ARB - £175 +vat (these come in kit form with bushes supplied)
    Front Bushes - £67.50 + vat

    Local Vw Dealer - 23mm ARB - £88.70
    19mm ARB - £47.30

    I believe there has been some posts on this before so sorry if I am repeating previous questions, but I need this info so I can at least order these items.

    Thanks in advance /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Would these fit the 1.8T quattro and the 1.9PD quattro?? VAGPARTS do seem pretty good on prices tho normally, think with nuespeed yr gonna pay for the name more than anything imo
