    Low, but comfortable suspension.

    Currently I have the standard sport suspension. I chose the sport version mainly because it looks much better than the SE. The improved handling was a nice bonus. I do find the suspension a bit harsh sometimes (although on my sportback it feels less harsh than a sport 3-door I test drove).

    I would like a more comfortable/balanced suspension without changing the ride height. Is that possible, or is a softer suspension automatically always higher? I appreciate that a softer suspension will degrade the handling a bit but that is okay, it will still be way better than my old vectra ;-)

    What I would like to achieve is the stance of a sport or s-line but the comfort of an SE.
    A3 sportback 2.0FSI sport, mauritius blue, proline, alu, interior light pack, rain&light sensor, cruise.

    Well a softer suspension is usually higher just because there is more travel and you need clearance for that.....

    Try changing the normal shock absorbers to standard Konis (not Koni Sport) I find them very good and maybe will be a good balance between confort and low rider...

    In my S3 the suspension is harsh but it is good when going fast... not so good in town driving and through speed bumps but it wasn't intended for that...
