    Bilstein B8's and Eibach springs are a popular choice and from personal exprience work very well indeed.

    yeah Bilstein B8s and a decent set of springs are popular. I went for HnR springs

    Having never driven an S3 with this setup I cannot personally comment, however I can say I've never heard a bad review of this setup. It seems to be the most popular and one of the best setups for the S3. I think this is mainly due to Bilstein actually doing research into the damping of their units for driving characteristic, where as most companies just go on guide weights and hope for the best.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    As mentioned the Bilstein B8 dampers and either the Eibach or H&R springs work very well on the S3 8L, tried and tested combo.
