Adjustable MQB Solid Rear Sway Bar Upgrade, MkVII Volkswagen Golf R, 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro, & MkIII Audi TT/TTS
We Also Recommend
034Motorsport is proud to offer the ultimate rear sway bar upgrade for the MkVII Volkswagen Golf R, 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro & MkIII Audi TT/TTS! The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar is made from a single piece of high-quality, 22.2mm thick spring steel for maximum rigidity, and is designed to combat understeer while reducing body roll under hard cornering.
This product was tested thoroughly on the street and track on 034Motorsport's 2016 Audi S3 Development Vehicle and multiple enthusiast-owned MQB Audi/Volkswagen vehicles before release. The 034Motorsport Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar substantially reduces understeer and body roll on 8V Audi A3/S3 Quattro, MkIII Audi TT/TTS Quattro & MkVII Volkswagen Golf R vehicles without compromising comfort on the street.
In addition, the 034Motorsport MQB Rear Sway Bar is engineered to be used effectively with the stock front sway bar. No upgrade in the front is required. The addition of a stiffer front bar can positively affect turn-in feel, but ultimately worsens the platform's tendency to understeer. With the stock front sway bar and upgraded 034Motorsport Solid Rear Sway Bar, body roll is virtually eliminated while turn in and off throttle oversteer are greatly improved.

Looks good, fits well, Operates well. From an engineering standpoint a hollow bar saves weight but would not be as cost effective. I got this for my MKV GLI and it was just about perfect for me coupled with H&R SuperSport springs, and was easy to get to rotate with a bit of drop throttle. Though not listed as a fitment, I also put it on my MKVI Beetle Turbo (both on the stiffest setting and same springs). It fits there fine too, though due to the platform differences, it is a more mild upgrade than on the Jetta as it doesn't liven up the balance as much on that chassis. Still good there too though.
Terrific product. A bit pricey but you get your dollars worth. Superb production quality. Easy fitment. Best of all, it works exactly as you would expect. In normal, around-town driving, you don't know it's on the car. In more aggressive maneuvering, you notice quickly that the car seems tighter, the built-in understeer has been largely eliminated ( resulting in very neutral handling ), and you can corner with a much flatter posture. I opted to go with the stock bar ends for mounting. 034 offers upgraded bar ends but for my usage they are probably not necessary. People who do a good bit of track time may find that the upgraded bar ends are worth the money.
I installed this product a few weeks ago and after daily driving, a few brisk Canyon runs, and an auto x event I can say it works great in all instances. For daily driving on the freeway and around down I noticed no difference which for me is good. When driving in the canyons and auto x I noticed significant reduction in body roll. I installed the 034Motorsport SPHERICAL MQB REAR SWAY BAR END Links along with this and the compliment nicely. The parts are so much better made than the stock ones for feel. All in all this is a product that is relatively easy to install if you have the correct tools and is worth the money and time spent to install it. I was offered this product at a discounted rate by 034 as part of their early adopter program. This has in no way affected my review of its performance enhancements.
