    H&R or bilstein cup kit or oher coilovers

    hay guys

    looking to improve the handling of my A3 8L, how is the H&R sport cup kit? is someone here running on them?
    how good they compared to the bilstein B12 sport kit?

    another option is to buy more expensive coilovers like the KW V1 or bilstein B14 (lowring the car only by 45 mm).


    thanks

    I have the H&R comfort coilovers and the dampers are made by Bilstein anyway (stamped onto the body of the coilover)

    Can't however comment on how good they are as I haven't fitted them yet.

    All depends what you're wanting from the kit and how low you want to go?

    the main goal is to improve the handling.
    of course i dont want to live to much gap between the wing and the wheel.

    From what you've said I'd say one of the better quality coilover kits may be the best option for you.

    For everyday fast road use it's hard to beat something lik ethe KW V1 or Eibach Pro Street S in my opinion.
