    How low you wanna go? I have the sport line on my sport back and it has a nice low look. The pro sport kit looks like sline ride height but with better handling

    Sportlines still aren't low enough to give you problems so I wouldn't worry about clearance.

    I have ap coilovers wound all the way down which is roughly 65mm lower and still don't really have issues. Get the occasional scrape but that's only going over bumps faster than 20mph.

    I wanted the sportline kit but can't get it for my car :'( something to do with load on axles ? So got pro kit not noticed a drop at in considering I was s line originally, any one know if I would have been ok to just buy the sportline kit despite it saying not available it's just I'm not so sure my cars that much heavier than a s3
