    yup, 25mm lower than standard.

    sport is 10 mm lower than standard
    s-line is 15mm lower than sport (25mm below standard)
    s3 is 10 mm lower than s-line (35mm below standard)

    hope that answers your question.

    Hi guys, i'm looking to lower my 2010 A3 sportback which is on standard suspension, As I have put on a set of 18's I am now thinking of lowering it to the same as the S-Line, does that mean I would need 25mm springs...?? Also which make springs are ideal. Thanks

    Is yours a sport or SE? there's a guy here with username 'smoothie' that is selling standard s line springs if you don't mind used. Alternative ia something like the eibach pro kit or H&R 35mm springs

    Another question on this please. Will s-line springs fit straight on a sport and does the s-line come with different dampers as well?

    There is not much of a difference tbh and I think the lower 35mm pro kit will be the equivalent in looks to an S3.
