    Smile S3 Springs and Dampers

    Hi there, I am a newbie from down under so thought I should introduce myself before asking questions. I live in Melbourne and have owned several Porsches, Mercs, Beemers and also keep a Maserati Gransport as my toy so you can see I love my cars.
    I have recently bought the S3 (8PA)as my town car but I am finding the ride just too hard around town so wondering what I can do with springs/dampers to give me a softer ride over the bumps but not mess too much with the handling. I don't want to lower the car as its plenty low enough as it is. Any advice or suggestions most welcome.

    Funny you should mention that....

    Am I the only person on the planet who’d like their S3 to have softer suspension?

    Thanks very much Damian, would you agree with what I have been told, that is the progressive nature of these springs will soften the ride but not compromise handling. Also do you ship to Oz?ThanksGeoff
