    OK - I have finally resigned myself to the fact that my prop is buggered....

    :(

    Two questions:

    1) Does anyone have one kicking around that they are willing to part with.

    2) Are the propshafts off of a 1.8 TQS and 1.8T TT the same as the S3 item?

    All comments gratefully received. Maybe. LOL

    This isn't a helping comment I know, but you do seem to have the most unreliable S3 on earth

    My other one is OK.... They're not that bad - I just bought an unloved nail and am now paying the price. Still - it will be a whole new car I'm done so it's not all bad!

    Nope, still a bit clunky. I've got new top mounts at home, and am going to get new bottom ball joints. Hopefully one of those will sort it!

    Depends if the problem is obvious or not....

    Mine isn't - but everything that I've changed wanted doing anyway to be honest so I don't mind.

    what do you mean your prop shaft is buggered?
    the uj's are kaput?

    have you noticed something out of the ordinary through driving, or having a butchers at it?
