    S3s with 19's side on pics and opinions required please... Apply within

    Evening dudes and dudettes.....


    As per title... In the not too distant future i'm selling the 8P2 to get an 8P3! However i'm still a bit indecisive as to what to do with the springs....

    Can I get some side on pictures and opinions/experiences of your car is running please....?

    I'm running the H&Rs on mine at present but only with 18s and need opinions with the 19s. Then decide whether or not i'm gona go Eibach or taking my springs with me..??

    Thankyou in advance... Jacko!

    H&R's all the way from me, every Audi i've owned has had a set and imo they have a perfect drop and a nice compliant ride due to the progressive spring rate used.
    This is mine with 19" BBS's and H&R's

    Yeah mate, loads of people say 19's just don't handle the way 18's do. I've always thought the same as the 18's look lost in the arches at times but as it's a performance car if say stick to 18's.

    Plus 19's are a much harder ride due to the smaller profile tyre.

    How come your upgrading?

    The wheels are 8j x 19 ET44 and i get very minimal rubbing with 225/35/19's on, removing the arch lining screw sorts that though.
    The red S3 had 215/35/19's on and never rubbed, but I didn't like the slight stretch on them.

    You do get a slightly harsher ride on 19's but not that much to make me want to stick with 18's!

    5dr looks nice but 3dr doesnt, 18 is better comfort and handling, each to their own but 19 are way too big and pointless unless you after looks.

    I think 19's on 8P2s look far too big and squashed I agree.... But on the 8P3 facelift due to the higher front ends I think 18's look lost.... Especially when lowering... Would rather have a better offset wheel than use spacers...

    I've just bought 19" CK's and I have H&R's i'll be fitting them late next week if you want a picture

    Also if you are going TTRS brakes then ET44 CK's clear without spacers.

    Yeah mate all pictures are welcome... Be good to see the car too!

    Thinking on a trip to the ring next year... So if I am, then uprated brakes will be a must for me... When I 1st got the S3 i thought the brakes were awesome... Now they are not so awesome ha
