    Question S3 Suspenion fit A3 Quattro?

    As the title says... will S3 suspension fit a A3 Quattro?

    I don't want coilovers and cannot for the life of me find anyone or any shocks and springs that go lower than 30mm for the A3 Quattro. The S-line is already dropped 15mm IRRC and this will only lower it a further 15mm which is pants!

    If S3 suspension fits then I can get it 10mm lower with standard and even lower when purchasing a lowering kit which I would do.

    Any advise would be appreciated Rob.

    Not going to be able to get the money quick enough, plus after ADI I've got the track bug back and coilovers will be more hassle than good.

    Sorry Chris I cant get the cash in time unless I win the lottery that I don't even take part in

    Cant afford to buy any suspension yet but as I know yours will go I have to know what I'm saving for next.
