    A3 1.8T Sport Rear Springs, are they the same as VW Golf 1.8T GTI?

    So MOT failure today and a broken rear spring. Looking around and checking other threads, i've found it difficult to ascertain if a standard rear spring would fit a 1.8T "Sport" . My guess it would but it would be 10mm higher than the right spring for the "Sport" model. VW parts are cheaper than Audi parts and more available e.g audi and Eurocarparts. i'm not looking to lower or buy anything special, just to replace what i had, i know boring but im not going to keep the car for much more.

    Anybody tell me which Springs from an VW golf GTIwould fit my car? Its an Audi A3 AUM 1.8T Sport 150h bhp

    Yes the A3 Fwd shares the same suspension as the mk4 golf Fwd
    ​Wish Rachel would let me have my TDI mk5 back
