    Bilsteins off a TT-Will they fit my S3?

    Would suspension from a 2001 Audi TT Quattro, specifically the Bilstein PSS9 Coilovers fit my 2001 S3? Guessing in theory they should, in reality though?
    Is there a UK Bilstein office?

    Any ideas, anyone?Thanks

    they will physically fit but the TT is slightly heavier so you may need different springs, its no by much though so may make no difference

    My Eibach springs are also for a TT so I can't imagine you'll have a problem. They will radically change the handling!

    Looking at various web sites, I can't see the Bilstein PSS9 Coilovers for a S3, but I can for the TT Quattro. Odd as I presume there would be.

    Is there a Uk contact to verify? So they should fit, but may be in-correct?
    Could be an expensive ebay purchase to get wrong

    Thanks for the input, they are the same part numbers
    Next question, does anyone on here have the same setup? Any good, harsh ride? I was going down the Bilstein shock route and lowered springs, but if I can get the coilovers for a good price it may be worth it.

    you'll probably need some tie bars aswell to make sure the rear camber isn't out! They are just as much as the suspension!
