    Coilovers

    Hello,

    I am looking at lowering my Audi A3 1.6 special edition car. My wheel strut's are 50mm but will 55mm fit?

    What are the best coilovers to be looking at getting?

    Thanks

    Welcome Harriet.

    Give Damian@dpm a site sponsor a shout, as he is someone I recommend all suspension parts.

    I can only echo the above. I got my coilovers from Damian at DPM and the service was excellent.

    After a lot of researching coilovers, I went for the AP's as they got very good reviews for the money and I can't fault them.

    Very impressed with mine, although I have had them on for a good few months now.

    Never lowered a car before this and I was a bit reluctant as I'd heard that coilovers are harsh but my AP's are if anything, more comfortable than the standard Sport springs.

    I'll have to get saving then and get a set, might even get adjustable damping ones! I've got JOM's on, abit too harsh ride for me, but still good coilovers for the price!
