    Here's my A3 with a 40mm drop (Wietec Ultra GT 40mm springs and shocks) running 18's








    When its on smaller wheels it looks a LOT lower, need 18's to deal with all the speedbumps around the place

    Here it is the day before the new kit got fitted with its 18's freshly on......I was getting vertigo driving it
