    tried my local audi dealer - bexley audi.
    first i had to get around the bafoon on the phone who insisted he could only sell to an rs4 owner, then said it would not fit my car, then said they did not have one in stock!
    TPS - now i am going to sound really thick - whats that then ???
    i searched via google and only things like the whiteline or h&r kit came up

    Click here for TPS.

    I tried contacting Pjmspeedy for my armrest a while back, but he's been off line for a while. i hope he's ok.

    The only way to get a dealer to order the parts is to walk in with a definitive list of part numbers and a credit card. The parts list is on an earlier post; I'll try and find it.

    Doesnt seem to bad, might get one myself

    Edit :)

    Called into TPS on my way back from having my coil pack recall done and odered a RARB, Bushes, Brackets and also ordered a Cupra Splitter while i was there. Probably should of ordered the drop links aswel. But the parts bloke at the Audi garage said i shouldnt need them. Fingers crossed theyre ok .

    Picking it all up Tomorrow afternoon

    Result! It's comforting to know Bexley Audi can occasionally get something right. Hope all goes well with you at Sanspeed. I'm sure it will; they've always done a good job for me.

    you cursed me with bexley audi !!!! LOL
    they have ordered some more for me and i am going back to sanspeed on the 06th to be fitted
    they will also ensure the suspension geometry and trqacking is all ok following it being lowered.
    spent just under a grand on friday in total, but was very impressed with everything they did

    ok got it fitted saturday
    thoughts......
    well, i basically think it make a difference, i was turning around a usual roundabout and i sort of ended up almost using to much steering as the was a lot less role, also went around another roundabout fairly briskly and again the rear was more planted, so a definite worthwhile mod for the cash
    could now do with something for the front ???

    No; leave the front anti-roll bar untouched. If you fit an uprated anti-roll bat to the front, it will have the reverse effect and increase understeer.

    ah ok
    even with my new tyres - only done under 100 miles on them, the grip and roll were much better
