    Wich is the best springs? Eibach or H&R

    I am planing to change my standard springs and suspension and would like to hear from experts.
    I have an Audi A3 1.8T with 320 hp engine.
    Here in Brazil we have Eibach and H&R suspensions.
    Wich is the best for performance and the same time riding confort? I don't want to lower to much due street bad conditions. I already have 235/45 x 17 Continental Contact 2.
    Forget the price consideration, because both have almost the same price here.

    Tks in advance.

    Well, you can see the dyno graph in my posted messages.
    I changed the standard turbocharger to a bigger one, chip remaping, exhaust system upgrade and other things.

    H&R every time. Great ride and mine is dropped 50mm on 18's and ive got no complaints at all. As for 320hp, id be interested to see a full spec list as to what you have done to your engine.

    Ok, I will try to describe all modifications to reach 320 hp:

    * Changed the standard turbocharger to a KKK .16;
    * K&N air filter;
    * escaping gatherer changed to a manual made;
    * Coller sparks (8Y I suppose);
    * Fuel changed to alcohol instead gasoline. This may be the difference.
    * ECU remapped to work with 1,4 bar (thanks to new fuel, this pressure does not compromise the engine)
    * fuel pump (changed to work with 8 bar pressure)
    * Exhaust System changed to a 2 1/2 inch, with no catalyser
    * Som hose was substituted for a metal (aeroquip) for high pressure (oil hose)

    That's all I think.
    I will try to make a movie showing my speed up (0 to 60 mph) and measure. I estimate 5.5 secs, but not sure.

    i dont want to be a pain but i cant see how what you have done can increase the power to 320. What hp did yours have as standard?

    My standard A3 was with 150 hp (A3 1.8T 150 hp).
    I will try to prove by photos and movies.

    Tks.
