    Safe lowering 51 plate s3?

    Hello,

    Im looking to lower my new (well new to me) S3.
    I had a 6n2 polo before the s3 and that was extremley low on coilovers.
    Im new to this quattro stuff, whats a safe drop?
    Considering springs or coilovers, I prefer coilovers as you can get the stance spot on.

    Cheers guys, awesome forum! Leanred lots of stuff about my new car

    Sweet cheers for the quick reply.
    Im looking at getting coilovers really as I can set them to what I like.
    Do you need shorter drop links? No issues with camber or driveshaft rubbing?

    drop links are not requiered, drive shaft rubbing is an a3 issue, camber will be a problem on the rears you will ideally need adjustable bars, if going low -15mm, but some dont bother and change the tyers more frequently....
