    I know its probably been done to death but I can't seem to find any pics of where to lift and place axle stands to get the S3 off the ground.

    So has anyone got pics of the best place to lift an S3 and then where to place the axle stands, also to maybe put it in the stickies too?

    Cheers

    I had the same question, but didn't get much response. I lift from just behind the sill, just in front of the rear wheels/just behind the fronts. I use a block of wood on the jack stand to avoid damaging the underseal. Placed the axle stands under the leading edge of the rear swing arm and under the front wishbone if I remember rightly.

    I always lift on one of the bolts for the lower arms on the front and where the rear arm connects to the car on the rear.

    I think thats the best explanation but this first night shift is killing me lol
