    Audi s3 8l spring question h&r or eibachs

    Hi everyone thinking about lowering my s3 a little, before I bought my car it recently had new shockers fitted so I'm thinking about fitting either eibach or h&r springs as I don't want to drop it to much.
    Just not sure which to fit,don't want it to bouncy but want it to sit right
    will both these spring kit cause my rear wheels to camber inwards at a drop of this level?
    If anybody has either of the springs fitted to there s3 I'd be greatfull of your reviews or thoughts
    there both around the £180 mark
    would anyone recommend another make?
    Thanks in advance

    Cheers for the link mate, that price is plus vat but still cheaper than I've seen for the h&r
    have you ever had either the eibach or h&r on your old s3?
    Just after a few reviews and opinions on both

    Wow, this was 2012, we're in 2014 now! Lol

    I see you are in Leicester, my mate in Solihull has a set of H&R springs for sale, if that's what you are after.
