    Has my car been lowered????

    Hi guys

    ive got a 2007 s3 and I am looking into fitting H&R springs to it, however although the front has around 40mm between the tyre and fender lip the rear is literally inline, the tyres are 225/40/R18,

    does this his sound like it's been lowered or does this sound standard??

    any help appreciated thanks guys

    Back has always sat considerably lower than the front. Audi designed that part on a Friday afternoon.

    if you look at the car side on, the back arch is actually lower on the bodywork than the front...which gives the impression its sitting nicer...

    i'm also considering the 25mm h+r springs.. give us an update as to how the ride comfort is after you have them fitted..

    Have a look at the springs, will have the brand on them if they are lowering springs or will have dots on if they are Audi parts
