    Ive got silverline highsports on mine. Had them on my mk2 golf aswell.

    They feel firmer on the S3, or that could just be me. As far as coilies go though, theyre great.

    not an s3 but ive got the fk sports on my a3 fwd. ride is firm not too harsh or crashy. really transformed the handling, too put into propective my mate has a boxter s and on the twisty stuff mine stays with it so with your 4wd too the ride would be great. also at 185 quid for mine it cudnt be sniffed at.....

    If you've been pleased with them in the past then they should be fine for you.

    As mentioned we have them in stock if anyone needs any info or prices.

    Can you run FK coilovers and keep the car standard height? Want better handling but can't afford to drop the car (struggle already at times believe it or not).

    Cheers,

    £225.00 inc. VAT and that's a price beat quote.

    I bought FK lights for a golf years ago and the were such poor build quality i swore i'd never buy FK again,i can only imagine how bad the coilovers are - up there with JOM i'd imagine.

    Seriously dude it's an S3 give it the respect it deserves
