    Wheel alignment settings for audi s3

    Hello all,

    on sat I'm going to have a full geometry set up after fitting Coilovers and new poly bushes all round. I'm trying to find the best settings to use, does anyone have experience of setting up a s3?

    My personal opinion is everyone likes their cars set up differently, and unless everyone is running the same suspension setup, setting can vary loads. I find that the cars ride height effects the handling quit dramatically! Lowering the center of gravity has a great effect on handling, the S3 is a hard car to get the balance right due to the unpredictable nature of the 4wd system aswell.

    Agree with jo. But gops' figures are pretty safe and would run well on most peoples cars as a daily driver.

    Prawns your man to ask if you want something more aggressive

    I went for the following, a little more aggressive but the zero toe helps with tyre wear. It feels awesome but then the clubsports are pretty decent.

    Front
    +7° caster
    -2°25 camber
    0 toe


    Rear
    -1°30 camber
    0 toe
