    Talking B8's with Std springs?

    Hey guys, just wanted to get your thoughts on running Bilstein B8's with std springs. Do you think this is a viable option, as I really want to avoid lowering the S3 anything more then 10-15mm if possible, Cheers.
    Thanks Ian

    It's not B8s you want then...they have shortened bodies to match with lowered springs.
    There is another in the range that is designed to match with standard springs - B6s perhaps?

    I'd think you'd risk topping the B8s out if you fitted them...

    Yeah B6's mate, B8's are only for when you're lowering the car.

    Thanks guys, I guess these are pretty much the same dampers quality of damping wise, but just not for lowering.
