    hard finding springs

    been looking a while for some springs to lower my car by 25-30mm,all i can find are 30mm lower and as i have an s-line i believe they already are 15mm lower than standard so it would only take it down 15mm,due to them already being 15mm lower will there be any issues going another 30mm lower and can anyone point me in the direction of some,cheers

    30mm lowering springs will only take you down a 5mm below s-line height.
    I don't think you'll find any lowering springs for the 3.2 (or any other quattro) that go any lower than 5mm below s-line.

    H&R do springs for the S3 which lowers by 25mm below S3 height, so that'll be about another 35mm below s-line. I have heard of people fitting these to A3 2.0T Quattros, but never 3.2s. The additional weight of the 3.2 would probably be too much.

    Your only choice might be coilovers to get you down to the height you want.

    Coilovers are your best bet for the 3.2 Quattro mate. V Maxx or similar.
