    Audi charges like $900 per side. I see another brand on ECS by GSP. Anybody ever installed the GSP ones or any other brand?

    I wouldn't touch those, I'd only use Raxles (rebuilt OEM) or OEM.

    that said, I have a new front passenger GSP axle (for 0A3 trans) just taking up space in my garage, so if you want it just PM me a reasonable offer :)

    I got myself "Raxles" - from what I heard they're the shit. These are rebuild OEM ones, I think to remember I paid like between $650-700 for both sides, for the ones for cars with aftermarket suspensions. Just had to send back my old ones, they will provide you a prepaid shipping label. https://www.raxles.com/

    GKN is the OEM supplier and you can buy them direct for around $250. I have replaced both front axles in my B6 with them and they have been perfectly fine so far.

    Repost: Personally, I wouldnít go with anything less than genuine. FCP Euro has them for $479 with a lifetime replacement guarantee. Theyíre remanufactured, but I wouldnít consider that a big deal with the warranty. Mine both looked brand new when I got them; couldnít tell they were remanufactured at all.

    I was recommended GKN or OEM as well. I had to use the GSP brand (from ECS), part number NCV23596, in a pinch. Itís still the unit on the car. I put 2374 mi of normal street driving on it and itís working just fine. No motorsports yet but plan on a couple auto-xís and a HPDE this year.

    Yep. Cheap doesn't ALWAYS mean bad. 20k+ miles of boosting and hard launching later and it's still on the car.

    Agreed, under some circumstances
