    well i asked them to diagnose a knocking at low speeds and they couldn't find anything?

    i'm 99% sure that it wasn't there before

    Did you change the top mounts when you did coily's as these are a common one to do when changing shocks etc, mine were buggered when I uprated to new suspension.

    smudge_don was kind enough to provide me with new-ish top mounts for them

    At a guess the front could be an antiroll bar catching (do A3s have drop links, not played with one yet) or maybe just the ARB bushes (or other bushes for that matter.

    TBH I've put coilovers on a lot of cars and these days I change as many of the bushes as possible while I'm doing it. Makes the car feel new and tight again.

    I've just had AP coilovers fitted & have a knocking which I can feel through the pedals. Only at slow speeds and it doesn't matter if you have the wheels on any sort of lock or not. Jacked it up and there's no signs of anything rubbing and I had top mounts and bearings replaced. Might take it back to Awesome.
