Since its not installed from stock and/if it's made by Audi.
What is the reason for them haveing this on the part list?
The part no mentioned on the post looks like an 8p no.
8P0 802 845 Front Left Jack Pad - 1 of required
8P0 802 846 Front Right Jack Pad - 1 of required
8N0 804 583 Rubber Buffers - 4 of required

I like the idea by installing this. Don't like to jack up the car leaving
marks and scratches. I always use a rubber/composite plate as a spacer
inbetween. But this can cause unstabitlity if it's not don right.
They should only be used in conjunction with a carlift and not jacks as they can cause the floorpan area to be crushed otherwise (I noticed this start to happen on my 8L A3 on which I used the TT pads).
I fitted mine using an old scissor jack and a large socket, same diameter as the insert sleeve to push the plastic sleeve firmly home, it's a simple 10 minute job.
Let us know how you get on with them, perhaps the 8P floor pans are stronger?
I have been reading quite a few threads on the s3 jacking points and looking for clarity and a definitive answer.
Can you use a trolley jack and jack on the jacking pads of the s3?
I have bought the esc tuning jack pad adaptor to spread the weight but have read people saying the floor can bend etc.
On the front jack pads on the s3 there is a plastic cover which seems to have been inserted into the lifting point does that have to be removed or do you just jack right on top of it, as its shapped with the hole in the middle for the jack pad adaptor to fit.
