    Revamp suspension / handling

    Had my a3 1.8t nearly 10 yrs now and the suspension could do with an overhaul, the steering and handling feel slack and fagiue. Im not bothered about lowering I just want a nicer steer. What do people recommend I can buy parts and get my garage to fit?

    Thanks

    If you don't want to lower it then just a general refresh with standard parts would improve things but if you're wanting to improve handling then without lowering I'd suggest Bilstein B6 dampers and a set of uprated ARB.

    The Eibach Pro springs will work best with the Bilstein B8 dampers which are exactly the same as the Bilstein B6 dampers but with a shorter piston to match the springs.

    Bilstein and Eibach offer this in a complete kit called the Bilstein B12 Pro kit.

    Let me know when you're looking to order and I'll see what we can do on prices.

    +1 for the B12 kit - I put this on my 2001 S3 last year and absolutely love it.
