    OEM Sport suspension is too firm!

    Roads in Manila are pretty bad, and I wonder if an Eibach Pro Kit and Koni FSD shocks would sit at the same height, but ride much better? Alternatively, are there other comfortable options? Don't want to go with coilovers.

    I find H&R (50mm but 25 should be similar) much more comfortable than OEM s-line suspension.

    Thanks for your response. My A3 has the Sport suspension, which is lower by something like 10mm. SportLine is even lower and stiffer. Do H&R springs tend to ride softer than Eibach Prokit?

    Ideally you'll need bump and rebound adjustability for comfort... look into PC coil overs.
