Googling it shows some interesting stuff. Theres a lot of information about TT arms, S3 Bushings, WALK, over on golfmkv.com

http://www.golfmkv.com/forums/showthread.php?t=140113

I considered until I saw it increases road noise pretty good.

i can say for certain that it doesn't increase road noise or vibes at all. the only change it will make to daily driving is slightly heavier steering and more feel and increased stiffness if you hit cats eyes in the road etc. otherwise its exactly the same just with the added benefit of more traction especially in the wet.

i ver run with ASR activated now and the car just digs in with the WALK and XDS level 2

yes its worth the extra money


if your going to do it might as well do it properly. i doubt you would feel the difference with the TT/S3 console.

also resale of the WALK will be double that of the S3 part if you come to sell it later
