    wilf i dont know. it just dont rub! tho i have just popped to asda and giving it beans round a round about i hear a very slight rubbing noise. (almost as the rubber pimple thingys you get round new tyres are rubbing) litterally very light. no new roll bar just powerflex bushes. ill be putting up in the air again tomorrow so i will report any nastys. have driven 40 miles with it slammed so far with no probs.

    jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzaaarrr$$$$$$$eeeeeee!!! after being impressed with the car yesterday i am over tho moon today. Had Full geometry set up, Lowered the back a little and fitted the strut brace. With new Goodyears on the front, and the road damp from an earlyer shower i give it some beans round a sweeping bend!!! What understeer!!! i am shocked at the handling of these A3 bad boys. I have had many mk2 golfs etc and nothing has got anything on the Audi! One very happy man!!! best few hundred quid i have spent in a long time!
