    Well after considering an S4 over the weekend I decided to stick with my old faithful. As I had the caliper carriers sat here for the 312 conversion I ordered some Brembo discs and pads and thought I might as well upgrade the snub mount as the stock one is tired. Where can I get an uprated one from? They used to be listed on the Awesome site but don't seem to be there any more :-(

    Is it a case of just asking for a B5 RS4 snub mount at the stealer? Need to get a door trim anyway.

    Yeh part number is 8D0199339E

    They're also fitted to 2.5TDi's and some other big dervs, so luckily dont have the RS Tax.

    Good find that was from me :D

    Its much harder than the standard mount which is pretty much a sponge!

    Nice one, ordered part and new door trim. He looked at me oddly when I quoted the part number. LoL

    I went in last week with a big list of part numbers and the blokes like "oh ye, you got access to ETKA then..."

    Who? ME?! Nah! :p

    Well that was good service. Popped in on the off chance as I was out working nearby. Bits were there waiting for me and the guy knocked 10% off for me.

    Busy weekend ahead with fitting my 312 brakes, new trim and snub mount
