    Just had the car serviced and it would seem that n/s rear bushes are std (metal?) ones and could be prone to seizing which may snap the lower arms? but the o/s has been replaced with newer rubber ones...

    is there anywhere other than audi (that would charge a fortune i assume) that i could get this done and for roughly how much? I'm in the Northants and Milton Keynes area...

    phoned zm this avo, took a while for the guy to realise exactly what i was on about! I said, S3 (8L), near side rear bushes. Off side been replaced already with rubber ones but the near side is still metal and is prone to seizing which can snap the lower and upper arms.... I said, the techie who serviced it doesn't have the correct tool to fit the bushes and said i should go to audi (he's VW techie)....
    But after a few mins of explaining i think he knew what i meant...He's gonna have a look tomorrow, and yeah £80 labour plus about £30 parts plus VAT.

    Cheers for that ;-)
    Btw my S3 still not regained full power since flattening the battery. But i haven't done a few hundred miles as recommended by guys on here yet, to see if it will return to remapped power.... does that guy in Aylesbury fix anything like that?
