    you need to use a hosting programme. I use Photobucket then add the URL to the thread by clicking on the

    icon and entering the URL designated by the hosting programme. I'm keen to see your motor.

    Nice clean example of an S3 there. Needs some 18's if you ask me. Then we can compare apples for apples.

    not really - I haven't really noticed a different. If you ask me 18's are better, less rubber = less body roll and a little more steering feedback.

    Looks good spiker!

    Do you have any photo of it directly from behind, so I can see the rear camber.


    Cheers,

    but 18's and spacers do fill the arches rather nicely

    For anyone still considering the fsd's and eibach this should clear things up - totally standard car apart from this mod

    I think its pretty clear how the car sits after - and you can see there is no lowering of the car afterwards - its somewhat the same / slightly higher

    AWESOME!!! Thank you very much spiker!

    I think those photos have finally cleared it up for me.

    Koni FSD's, Eibach Pro-Kit Springs and H&R ARB's for me.

    As the ARB's dont affect ride height, they should not introduce any more/less rear camber, so no need for the adjustable tie-bars by the looks of things. If they are needed at least this setup looks to be forgiving on the inner edges while I save up for some.


    Thank you.
