    Very nice. Great to see a really low coilover drop rather than using air.

    Wow... first a big Thank you for all the nice comments. I´am proud of it, that you like it

    I hope i can drive the Rotor Rims on my A3. Has anyone a idea or drive anyone themselves on his Car?! Or other 9x19 Rims with almost the same offset? Pictures of them would make me happy :D Interesting for me is the space between the shok absorber to the rim and between rim and fender.

    Thanks in advance

    Some other Pictures from 2011 for all the lovers of low Audis :D

    No chassis notch, no knocks or bang ups and no rubbing

    Only the fenders are some millimeters drawn. I think so 3mm, not more. I hope the 9x19 fit purely :/

    Wow, that's low for static!

    Looks amazing. Sehr gut
    There's many running 9x19". Shouldn't be a problem with 215s. Might need spacers though?

    Car looks good bro, although it is a little too low for my taste.

    As an A3 owner from across the pond in America, I find it amusing that Europeans like the U.S. style bumpers with the side marker lights. Here in America we hate them and try to make them look like the euro bumpers without the side marker light. Haha!

    This always amuses me too. Although I think side markers suck so I think we get the better deal in Europe

    What grilles are you on about? If you mean the side markers just have to cut your bumper to get them to fit.

    Thank you guys!

    In Germany all loves the US-Parts :D We also find it funny that you guys in USA take the EU parts :D

    This is a US S-Line Bumper. The S3 Bumper dont have Sidemarkers. If you would have the Sidemarkers i recommed to buy a original bumper. Cut the bumper i have tried on a normal bumper. But that was not so good. :S
