The lower is very simple to fit just a case of jacking up and using axle stands and then bolting in job done! You will have to remove undertray if you have one.

The lower one is so easy to fit and you can do it in 10 minutes, all you have to do is get the front end off the ground, slide under the car, hold the brace up and bolt her into position.

The upper one is somewhat more difficult but I would get it done!! These are very cheap mods and mine handles so much better now!!

Don't hesitate on doing this mod!! The only thing to bear in mind is the Engine Cover as on some models the Upper Brace doesn't fit!!

how do you know if the engine cover will impede?

i think on a 1.8T your fine. Its the TDI's that the engine cover has to be ditched.

MikeTDI is right, it's the TDI's that have to loose the cover.

If you look at my engine bay you can see where the bar fits into position, sorry I can't be more specific.

MAN!! Can do better on the prices than that people [:D]

Upper = ?44.69p or ?52.51p inc vat

Lower = ?10.74 or ?12.62 inc VAT

Caps, nuts n bolts = ?2 or ?2.35p inc VAT

Delivery via courrier = ?8.23p

These are ad-hoc prices can do LOADS better for a GB IF there is enough interest

[:D] [:D] [:D] [:D] [:D]

You know where I am

Cheers

I have the upper and lower S3 braces fitted to my V5 170, the clearance between the throttle body and the upper brace is a tight fit.

I can post some pics up tomorrow if it helps.
