    KW V3 different springs

    Hi guys,

    can someone tell me if there are some other lower springs which
    i can replace them with standard KW V3 ones? Anybody done it?

    The rear on Kw V3 just cant go low enough,i need 20mm or more!

    Si,If i'm getting this right:
    A3 standard -15mm
    S Line -25mm
    S3 same as S-line 25mm
    H&R springs -25mm,thats another 25mm from standrad S3 which makes total 50mm!?
    KW V3 -40mm,so thats just -15mm from standard 25mm!?

    Help me out here guys,need to drop my S3 but dont want to sell KW's.
