    SHOW ME - Pics of 'standard sports/17s' using Eibach Sportlines

    Chaps

    Ive bought a set of Eibach sportlines for my standard 3dr sport. I have the standard early 17s.
    All pics I can find of A3s lowered on Eibach sportlines are running 18s or 19s.

    Does andone run them using 17s? please show me!

    Cheers

    Sportlines mate.

    I have to slow down for speed bumps yeah. Got a little scrape last night, haven't checked, but sounded like bumper or undertray rather then tyre on archliner.
    But other than that been OK so far. Never really have more than baba and 2 passengers.

    Not been in one, but id imagine worse. Smaller profile tyres, means a harsher ride in general.

    Errrr no. Lower profile tyres = harsher ride. unless you mean increase clearance over bumps, in which case yes (very slightly).
