    Why would you want to go 'that' low? Is it a3 or s3?

    Blue line JOM ones go as low as 100mm.
    MODS - Custom Code phase 1, 007p DV, various powerflex bushes, EBC grooved and drilled - red stuff pads, N249 deletion. Badger5 V2 80mm TIP. Scorpion backbox + custom centre section, LCR front splitter, Jetex Fr-08001, R32 rear ARB, Forged IE rifle drilled rods, 20mm rear & 15mm front spacers.

    TO DO - Coilovers, adjustable tie arms, DP/mani/decat, FMIC and new remap

    It's an a3, I've had an 8p stupid low in the states and want to get back to being static again.

    Random question can you get stopped by the police for being low in the uk?
    thanks for the advice on the joms

    no sir, not as i know anyway, you can be stopped for being too wide though if the wheels stick out further than the car im sure of that but not being low, i'm real low at the moment

    Thanks guys I may just keep the a3 as a daily and find a Quattro or mk1 swallowtail for fun

    I wish I could just bring over fuel, I last filled my my 2.0t for 45dollars before I sold it and the hse for 90 both on premium..... That said that's about all the states have going for them
