    Standard S3 suspension worth anything?

    So the S3 ended up being part-ex'd in a bit of a hurry; I never got around to removing the H&R springs and dampers. The stock S3 springs and dampers are sat at my parent's house, and I'm wondering whether it's worth the effort driving there to pick them up and sell them.

    So in short, would OEM Springs and Dampers from a 2008 (8P2) 3dr S3 be worth anything?

    They're at least worth something if they fit a 2011 3dr 1.6 TDI I can dream..

    I did see that, cheers Phil. Not sure if the suspension setup is the same across 3dr and 5dr - assume the weights are almost identical, so possible.... any experts want to chip in?

    Found this on eBay, look pretty pricey when you think you could get cheapish coilovers for the same sort of price.

    Nice one! Might bung them in the Classifieds on here for a couple of hundred quid then!
