    Springs.....?!?!

    A couple of questions about suspension

    I have an a3 Quattro 2.0 tdi s line and as far as in aware the suspension is the same as an s3 (ie the after market parts are the same )

    Are s3 springs lower than sline?

    And is there an aftermarket kit that is just as comfortable a ride as s line?

    Thanks

    not the expert but as far as im aware

    A3 Sport 15mm lowered (stock)
    A3 S line 25mm lowered (stock)

    And the S3 is lower then the s line by i think another 10mm making it 35mm from stock.

    The S-Line ride is quite stiff so as long as you stick with a good quality brand you shouldnt have any problems.

    Did you have a drop and budget in mind?

    Something around 40 mm but if the s3 ones where low enough they would be cheaper to get (second hand) than any others.

    Iv seen a h and r cup kit I quite like the look of but a little expensive.

    What would you recommend for around 300 quid ?

    To get a full 40mm on an Quattro S-Line you'd need to go for coilovers.

    Would s3 lowering springs drop it by?

    On the S3 8P?

    It will be a little stiffer as you're going lower but not a great deal different to the ride from the standard springs which are already fairly stiff.

    Pretty much yes but it would be a little stiffer.
