    For all the LOW LOW LOWWWW a3's out there

    just had my coilovers put on, to look at its the right height, maybe a bit lower would be nicer. but it still scrapes and makes noises as i drive along, even with just me in the car, when i put a full tank of diesel in it was even worse.

    what can i do to overcome this, as there are many people lower than me that must have overcome the issue

    thanks, matt.

    Nathan (Legend) also hooked me up with V-Maxx with no problems and as said above its your wheels offset etc or might rub if your using monster truck tyres.

    Selling MY11 rear lights, message me for a price
