    My suspension is started to make these squeking noises so i think that my bushes are worn out. Do you recommend original VAG bushes or Powerflex ones?

    I do maybe 7-10 trackdays in year so suspension is little bit more under stress than normal day-to-day driving.

    Could be worth while trying out the Poly bushes and seeing if they make any difference for you.

    Is there any other brand that makes poly bushes for S3 than Powerflex?

    ECS do, however the powerflex ones tend to be easier to fit in my experience, I couldn't get the ECS front - rear wishbone bushes to fit my S3.

    I'd suggest the poly bushes at the front of the car are a fantastic idea form my experience, made my car a lot better to drive.

    I've just ordered a full set of powerflex bushes (front & rear) also with the front engine (dogbone) mount.

    I will let you know what i think soon as i have them all fitted in the comming weeks.

    Cheers, Pete.

    Yes, but they also give you better feel and better handling - In my limited experience anyway.

    I done all the bushes on my M3 with powerflex ones. far easier to install than OE and gave the car a nice solid feel. I know they are different cars but Id do it again if any on the S3 start to get tired.
