    Depends on how far you want to go with the car. Has your coilovers got a tab on them to accept drop links??

    if your just looking to lower it and enjoy as is, then the dpm option is the best.

    if coilovers have drop link tabs, then TT, s3 or lcr anti roll bar with new drop links would be ok, also oem so insurer friendly

    I have just slammed my A3 on coilovers on 18" wheels, front tyres are tucked in the arches on standard ARB and I have no rubbing issues?
