Lupo 3L Front Struts


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i bought front and rear Billstein shock absorbers for my 3L. It turned out that the front struts will not fit. 3L has aluminium struts like these...

Is there any replacement for the OEM part, or am I most likely to be ripped off by the dealer? Ty guys...

I am actually trying to figure out whether i could use Lupo 1.4tdi Bilstein front shocks instead of original 3l alu shocks... 2X Oem 3l front shocks are 2X 260 euros. I ordered Bilstein 4476 with coils, bearings, dust covers and all. If they dont fit, the scenario with a very high probability, im gonna set it on fire.

Looking at ETKA, all the top mounts and bearings are the same so I don't see why they wouldn't fit.

There must be something different about the fitment, because I think the 3L front struts are still available from VW, otherwise they would be obsolete like the rears.

I've never had them side by side, so I can't think what's different. But the top mounts are the same as an A3.
