    hey all,

    i've just been informed by a mechanic (friend of a friend) that the rear diff's on the S3's are **** and notorious for failing? he strongly advised against my haldex upgrade? i dont know the man but he comes highly recomended from an experianced mate?

    i said i'd heard nothing on here from mainly happy costomers?

    anybody got stories to the contrary??

    have to say that sounds like ******** to me.

    Haldex failures are rare, and the performance controllers are made by haldex themselves, so you should expect them to be just as reliable.

    I've been running mine for well over a year now. No issues at all, not even with the BT.
