    it could well be rear shocks. they will fail to control the springs bounce as they wear... failing that, it's stiffer springs for you..

    I too have suffered the failure of the NRS Shock on my 2.0T, oil now on the driveway. I think I've done quite well compared to other members as I've just hit the 52,000mile mark, though I was informed of slight misting about 10months ago.

    Anyway just been on the phone to Eurocarparts in Leeds to enquire about a set of B4's for the rear, L24.95+VAT each. Very happy price. They don't have them in stock but will get them for me within the next day or two.

    I don't think I'm prepared to fit them myself as I only have the supplied scissor jack so will see if a local independant will fit them for me. Until then I'll resist the urge to drift each and every roundabout I come across.

    Regards

    Nidge
