    Standard S3 suspension

    Ive been considering uprating the shocks on my S3 but keeping the standard springs. I have had issues with some stupidly large speed bumps on the way to work and im currently happy with the cars appearance which is why I dont really want to lower it at all.
    Im finding the ride a bit harsh and crashy at times, I've had the car 5 years since new so maybe its getting worse im not sure.

    Do the paint marks on the springs represent different rates or something else, ive got 1x white & 1x pink and I cant find this combination anywhere in ETKA although the code for shocks lines up with std S3. If there are different rates what part number/paint codes do they match up to, ie softer, harder springs.

    Thanks

    There was an option of Audi GmbH sports suspenion, but I think that was only available in Europe. Paul-S3 has it on his car.

    I had pink and white spots on my springs, not sure if it really means anything....
