Sadly no tabs. Trying to work it out with the guy who sold them to me, cause he said they did.

I can get an R32 sway bay, but need R32 coilovers cause the sway bar mounts to the strut itself.

These cars don't need a front sway bar. They have a natural tendency to understeer. Bigger rear bar and no front bar is the way to go. My friends runs a and A3 golf in SCCA and that's they way he has been running it for years.

Thanks! A few of us had a mini-group buy with Matt Whitbread. Had him make the FMIC kit.

I would like the car to oversteer if anything. I took it up to the dragon with stock sways and it pushed very badly (had crappy tires though). I have had rear wheel drive vehicles all my life so I can handle a car that kicks the tail end out no problem.

Pull the sway bar and drive it around see how you like it.

Thanks! No cons, just keeps the oil from going back into the turbo inlet pipe *thumbsup*

When running a larger turbo and/or tune, the crank case pressure sure does go up. I had a catch can but was having weird pressure issues with it.
