    Help - coil spring.

    Dear all,

    My S3 has just failed its first MOT, the rear coil spring is broken. Does any one know any good upgrades ? Might as well take advantage of this 'opportunity'.

    cheers.

    Same happened to mine , but not at an MOT. I take it you didn't notice any difference then? Mine hardly felt any different as the break was on the last coil. I've been told Eibach are good ones at 130 a set and you can get a set that lowers by 20mm too.

    I had Eibach Pro springs on my S3 and when I stripped the car of performance parts prior to trading it in, both rear springs at the last coil had snapped.

    Eibach replaced them under warranty because they come with a 5 years gaurantee.

    Same happened to me. I replaced mine with Eibach springs and they were great! Eibach or H&R will be fine..

    Iv'e got Eibachs on too...worrying though they crack/snap.

    Apart from looking at them is there any tell tale signs when driving that they have gone the journey?
