    Nicely done. Not got mine yet. Paying for my holiday and a few small things :)

    Front ARB has mixed fitting feedback. Gonna give it a go myself.

    Damn all this time i put off buying ARBs cas I thought they cost loads.

    Shame as I am selling the '3' now so I'll probably never experience what the car feels like with these on.
    ahh well.
    Hope you enjoy em bud.

    Didn't Ess_Three recommend not upgrading to R32 arb's if planning on staying with OEM dampers? (sure I read it on one of his threads somewhere)

    Not that I know what dampers you'll be running... :)

    Fitted front and rear R32 arbs to my S3 last week would advise that you only need to order the bars and bushes from VW, i just reused original bolts and bush clips from the S3. S3 bush clips and R32 bush clips are different so if you want new clips order S3 ones. Handling was vastly improved on the standard suspension for the week ...........now even better fitted B8'S and eibachs yesterday:rockwoot:

    Well guys i fitted the rear anti roll bar today pretty straight forward, unbolt the backbox hangers (4 bolts) & unhook the centre section rubber hanger (your ll need to support the exhaust system). Then unbolt the heat shield (4 bolts) & remove. Next step is to unbolt each end of the ARB (do this before removing the centre clamps) then unbolt the centre clamps. Put eveything back in reverse order simples !

    The only issues i came accross was that the clamps i ordered (below) dont have the heat shield bolts coming off the end they were useless, i just used the orignals which werent in to bad shape. You also need to order more bolts than i did but you can use the originals (only needed on the rear, i dont know about the front).

    FRONT:
    1 x 1j0 411 305 AF (FRONT 23MM ARB) £67.58
    2 x 1J0 411 314 T (21MM FRONT RUBBER MOUNT) £4.93 EACH
    2 x 1J0 411 336D (CLAMPS) £5.50 EACH
    2 x N 101 016 03 (BOLT) £0.80 EACH

    REAR:
    1 x 1J0 511 409 K (REAR 19MM ARB) £89.17
    2 x 8A0 511 439 (ARB CLAMPS) £4.73 EACH (will not work with S3 you need S3 clamps)
    2 x 4B0 511 327 Rear ARB Bush £3.27 EACH
    4 x N 010 236 6 (BOLT) £0.62 EACH
