    Probably because they are A2 platform cars, same as the Mk2, and run 4 stud running gear - they are essentially correct apart from the body and interior - 16v engines and the 4 pot G60 lump were also...

    Valeo seems to be the best - this has been covered plenty of times. You can still get Mk3 ones from VAG new, but they are about £150 and also made by Valeo. Sometimes you will also see Hella ones....
