    You do know that you will need Adjustable Tiebars when lowering the S3? If not you will go though tyres like theres no tomorrow and theres a chance the standard ones will snap and ruin your lovely S3.

    haha, Im sure your better off going a little out of pocket and buying the bars, because if they snap you will have more then a 200 bill

    As said the AP's are a good option but save for that little bit longer and get some tie bars as well.
