    Anyone running H&R 35mm springs on 18s?

    As the title says, am planning on getting some H&R's next year but would be interested to see some pics of how the car sit's with them on 18s.

    Thanks

    Before my coilovers i was on a 35mm drop with H&R springs, didn't really make much difference to the ride height to be honest, as the S-Line is slightly lower anyway it was only a 20mm ish drop which i couldn't really notice even with 500 miles on the springs.

    Im running 50mm H&R springs on 18" OEM Wheels.....remember s-line is about 20mm lower than standard already

    So my 50mm spring - 20mm existing s-line spring = lowerage of about 30mm

    What profile tyres do you have in that pic smoothie? Im after H&R springs for mine, got in touch with dpm they only have 35mm springs to fit the quattro. Its an s-line so as said above with 35mm springs its not goin to be a huge difference. Does anyone know if 50mm springs are available for the quattro?

    -50mm springs..that a bit of pressure for your shocks to cope with!

    That's a fairy tale, it's tried and tested on here and mines running perfect at that height! only lowered 25-30mm from s-line....eiabch springs drop futher than that

    50mm is pretty much the limit though, then a shock upgrade is in order which is probably why they only make a 35 & 50

    Yea they should be available for the quattro

    Yeah I would love to go collies but funds are needed elsewhere, what about the handling as I heard it's a much more comfortable drive but still better in corners?

    Thanks that helped alot, ride height looks better than mine but I agree 19s look alot better, when ever I get round to changing may opt for 19" RS4s then

    Yeah I knew about the being 15-20mm lower already, would love to go abit lower but with the quattro 35mm springs seem to be the lowest around without going collies

    Thanks

    I was thinking of putting 35mm H&R springs on my A3 55 plate SE, it sits really high lol, but because it sits so high im thinking 50mm would sit better, would that be a correct asumption?

    and as i have an SE will i need new shocks? thanks

    I have 35mm H&R on 19" rotors. If I'm honest I wish I went for 50mm springs.

    I was thinking the same but my problem is I have an SE which obv is softer than sport so thinking if I want to go 50mm I probs end up needing to change shocks too
