    Hi all

    I'm looking at putting a rear arb on my 2002 2wd 1.8T.

    I was just wondering what you guys have done on a budget?

    Is the S3 an option?

    Cheers

    I'm pretty interested in this to I find only the popular brands like H & R and whiteline and them but they so bloody expensive!

    Don't know if it does fit mate but if you need a S3 ARB drop me a message as I'm upgrading mine very soon.

    I agree. I'm sure because of the independent suspension the ARB is different.

    S3 RARB will not fit.

    Whiteline or Eibach are your best bet, whitelines go for about £100 used and anything off a Leon, Mk4 or A3 will fit.

    There are a couple for sale on edition38 at the moment.

    ^ 4WD so different mounting points. R32 part will fit an S3 though.
