    H&R springs with Bilstein dampers.

    Comfortable (not noticably harder than standard over potholes), lowers about 20-30mm, dampers are absolutelt perfectly damped and since there is no adjustment...you fit the lot and forget it.

    Cost? I'm not sure..it was over 3 years ago I had my stuff fitted.

    The knocking noise?...Hmm...
    No idea really...anti-roll bar bush maybe?

    I'll PM you a price and as for the knocking, i'd say first thing to check would be the ARB.

    DPM could you PM me a price for that setup too?

    Also for anyone with the setup, does it make the car "bouncy" at all? My experience with lowered cars has been they've been more bouncy over bumps than standard.

    Sounds like you've experienced too stiffly sprung springs and too weakly damped dampers - typical of cheap suspension kits, in my view.

    The H&R spring aren't bouncy when mated to Bilstein dampers.
    The dampers are the key to the S3s handling, as the standard efforts are pathetic even when new.

    An H&R/Bilstein set up will be stiffer for sure...but not noticably more harsh.
    It has a vice like grip on the suspension...both low and high speed damping is very good with no oscillating evident on high loading, long, fast corners.

    All in all, in my view, the perfect set up for a road S3.

    Damian,

    looks like a few people interested in the Bilsteins, H&R Springs and the Forge Tie-Bars. I think the prices are quite good, but the price of the forge tie bars is putting me off a bit.

    Would it be possible to work out some sort of group buy price for all 3 items?

    cheers

    Jon

    Yeah, the tie bars aren't cheap. The prices i've quoted do already have some discount but for all three items bought together i'll PM you another price!
