    Hey guys I have got an a3 Quattro (ary) and the gearbox is on its way out should I try and find a low mileage replacement or recondition my current one. Also I am looking at getting a bit more power the engine has done 120k would this also need reconditioning or should I look for a new one.

    Thanks :D

    No, the S3 has different bodyshell with wider arches and different bumpers, rear spoiler, Xenon lights, Recaro seats etc so a fair bit different to the A3 quattro and I've prob missed a few bits.
