    New ones are around 35 quid from euro carparts and they have a 25% off deal at the moment so I would buy a new one...

    If you are looking for second hand then use the classifieds as wanted ads in the main forums will result in thread closure...

    Its a relatively straight forward job but requires a special tool to undo the arm at the rack...

    ...not sure if there are different sizes available or what size is needed for an S3 track rod... I'd get the rod then measure it... you could also have a quick google as I am sure there are some homemade alternatives out there...
