    Mark if the tread on your front tyres is more than your rear tyres it will whine try swaping them round first

    If you need a new diff try looking on ebay for Audi S3's that are breaking could get one for a good price!

    As said, look in the classifieds and also maybe worth posting a wanted ad too...

    If anyone has a diff then please contact the OP via PM...

    Got my rear diff replaced several months ago now after my old one was knackered- pretty sure it was around the £300 IIRC from a low mileage S3.

    I expect you can get them cheaper, but the garage that does all my work sourced the diff and recommended it as a good one.

    I managed to buy one for £100 off ebay, but it might be worth replacing the rear diff oil and see if that makes any difference.
