Morning all, Doing a bit of work on the S3 yesterday and I came across this. All four were just as bad. I cannot stress enough how important it is that you thoroughly check over your car, especially if it is new to you. I've done about 250 miles since November in my S3, any one of those miles I have been a pothole away from a major mishap. If I can miss something as in your face as this then anyone can, so I'd really suggest adding a tie arm inspection to your to do list/service routine. Happy boosting.
