    Which Haldex GEN? 11/06 S3

    That’s the one I bought, be aware you may need a replacement filler plug as well, mine had the Allen key socket rounded off, I had to undo it with a hammer and chisel, also get yourself a syphon pump, to fill the unit I got one from Halfords for six quid.

    Need help choosing my first car. A3 or A3Q? or BMW

    Jetta GLI sde skirt on A3 8P project: should I continue?

    Get some good quality body tape to attach them, after all it’s what manufacturers use to fix body kits, plus it can be removed with a heat gun or hair dryer, they look really good, well done buddy.

    Quattro will definitely be able to put the power down, rather than just spinning the tyres, bimmer engines aren’t that reliable, just like most cars, depends how they’ve been treated and maintained.

    You could always have a look under the back to see if there is a rear differential, it will be pretty obvious tbh.
