    suspension

    Hi guys !

    Got my A3 Quattro lowered 25mm at the mo but it just doesnt sit quite low enough for my liking, stuck on what to do next. Im either gonna go 4 -50mm springs or coilovers but there is a massive difference in price as you can imagine. Are coilovers really worth the difference in if im not gonna be using it for the track ? Just want it to sit nicely with the tyres flush with the arches.

    Thanks in advance folks ! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Dropped mine 50mm and it sits perfectly... Although its more like a 40mm drop. I would go for a set of springs, and decent shock, and spend the extra on anti roll bars. Coilovers arent really necessary.

    Jimbo,EsseThree recommends bilstein and h&r springs better ride than standard s3 and better handling.What i'm trying to work out at the moment is how to get more front camber adjustment.Cheers Andy
