    MK1 TT suspension, does it fit S3 8L? 40/45mm drop shocks and springs

    Is anyone running shocks/springs on a 45/40mm drop? front and rear respectively

    I've been offered a decent setup at a good price. The major stumbling block is that they are for a mk1 TT,


    So first question is will these springs/shocks fit the S3 8L?

    If you are running a a similiar setup could you post up some pics for me, on 17's or 18" TTRS alloys

    Cheers

    Ben

    H&Rs are a good spring although most go -25mm... Koni's are good enough dampers... lot of people rate them
