I wondered if anybody can compare the B9 suspension as far as the ride comfort goes, the B9 s-line suspension seems to be quite well damped and good at absorbing the bumps Is it possible that people can compare between the normal A4 s-line and S4 or, if...

    A3 Quattro/S3 handling (Understeer)

    Hello, I've swapped my A3 to AWD (as you do) I've noticed rather a lot of understeer under power in the wet and dry, it wants to go in a straight line (I've got coilovers, ARBS, ALK) In the wet it gets even more interesting, understeer to a point so you have to mash the loud pedal to get the...

    DQ250 to DQ500 swap

    I suppose I better post a project thread about this now that I'm actually doing this swap!

I...
