    GB Feeler: A3/S3 8L Quattro Bilstein B8 Dampers

    Just been speaking to Bilstein and we've been wondering if anyone would be interested in another GB for the Bilstein B8 dampers for the A3 8L Quattro and S3 8L?

    They're normally 549 a set plus postage so we'd be looking to get them at around 450 all in for 5 or more people.

    I think with the interest already it's not going to take long to move from a feeler to an actual GB.

    Yeah, H&R have went wild with the new prices. Eibach's are a really good option though.

    Yeah they come in a full set of 4 and they're a very similar spring to the H&R, the H&R are slightly lighter though.

    The B8's are a thicker damper to the ones in the B12 kit and the Eibach springs are a lot better in terms of quality, handling and comfort then the Apex that come with the B12 kits.

    Do you have an idea of the 'settled' lowering height of the Eibachs? Experience with this type of damper/spring in the past have never lived up to the claimed 'lower by XXmm' and have ended up with coilovers to get the right look. I am not after slammed but do need it to look right (I am a tart!!). I have fitted Eibach springs to my old A4 that actually lowered the rear more than the front and made it look more like an old skool rally car!!!.

    My rear camber on my car seems to be a lot more than most I have seen which makes me think its got low factory springs fitted (the rears have 5 paint dots) and I have a concern that fitting this kit will not actually lower my car at all... (although handling will be better no doubt)

    Soz for the waffling on but just trying to get an idea of what to expect before commiting a wedge of cash

    Coilovers may be the better option then if you already have the 10mm lower factory springs.

    From the 4 different sets of springs you referer to Damian, which would you point out to be the best. Meaning which set have the best comfort compared to OEM and which are the least harsh over bumps yet firm and communicative...

    Did that make sense at all...

    The most comfortable out of the 4 are the Weitec's, the best all round i would say either the H&R or the Eibach (I use to say H&R all day long but they are very expensive now-a-days).

    Hope this helps,

    Daft question, do the B8's lower the car at all as they're shorter. Ive got eibach springs on the car now, and cant afford for it to go any lower.
    cheers

    The Bilstein B8's will match the Eibach springs you have on now better then what the standard dampers will as they'll always be slightly compressed to match the shorter spring.
