    S3 vs TQ alignment

    What's the difference between the S3 and the TQ alignment settings? I'm getting Bilstein B8's, H&R Sport Springs and Forge rear control arms fitted to the TQ on Thursday and was wondering if things might handle better if I have the alignment set to as close to S3 spec as possible. Any ideas? Thx

    Huh? A friend at work was asking about chipping, so I came by to pull up my Oettinger graph as posted in the "Performance Graphs" forum, only to find it's gone missing So what happened? Was it pulled to make room for something else?

    S3 droplinks??

    Does anyone know if the S3 uses the same size droplinks as the A3TQ?? If, say, the S3 has slightly larger droplinks, could that help stiffen up the suspension?? Just curious Thx

    ...well, they've got a good group of guys workin for them. And I must say, for my first WEEK of membership, I've been treated quite nice.

    A/S3 front suspensions??

    OK, going off of adjturbo's problems with fitting an S3 Strut Brace to his A3 TS. What are the differences between the FWD and Quattro front suspension?? I had always assumed that the FRONT was identical, and that for obvious reasons, the rear was different. Does anyone know??

    S3 upper stress bar on to an A3?

    OK Guys, I'm thinking of putting an S3 upper stress bar onto my A3 TQ. Thing is, I'm not sure if it's a simple DIY job where all I have to do is "Drill" a couple of holes and bolt it in place, or if there are other things involved. IIRC JPR did this to his A3, but has anyone else done or...
