    Is it ever worth fitting a front Strut Brace to an A4 2,8 quattro ? Its a 2000 year model

    Yer S4's came with them as standard, as did 1.8TQS's

    Not sure if yours will, but if not you can buy some brackets from an A6 and use a redrilled S4 bar for not very much money.

    Interesting... there's an A6 in my local breakers yard.

    Might be a winter mod for mine then.

    Thinking about it, i dont know if craigs S4 has one either.

    I've had the battery out of that to clear the scuttle drains, and dont recall seeing it...

    Olly: if it was there, you'd see the brackets, as they're part of the shell on A4/S4's that had it from the factory...

    I wonder if its a facelift feature? They defo tweaked around with the suspension going to facelift, i wonder if this was one of the additions?
