    Just got a couple of queries if anyone is able to help.

    I have a 2006 A3 2.0 TDI Quattro and the leaking shock is the near side rear.

    First, does anyone know if the rear shock is the same for the quattro as the 2wd?

    And second best place to pick one up for a decent price other than the dealers?

    Thanks

    Ive just had my MOT and had an advisory about oil misting on the same shock absorber as you. Let me know how much you paid for the shock absorber since i might consider changing mine if it gets really bad.
