    Some decent pictures of the A3 on coilovers.

    After a very much needed wash and wax here are some decent photos of the car on the coilovers i bought from Jonny.

    The front is on the lowest setting and the rear is 75mm from the bottom of the lowest setting. The car in my opinion is sitting absolutely perfectly, the rear does scrub lightly sometimes but that will be solved with the change the screw inside the arch.

    From the centre of the front wheel to the arch it is 33mm and on the rear its 34mm, does anyone know what the measurements are on a standard S-Line A3? I forgot to measure mine before i put the coilovers on.

    As far as more modifications i think i am happy with it as it is now, the only other thing i would or am thinking about is a Milltek but only if i find a bargain.

    Anyway here are some photo's.









    New DRL's lights from the group buy, so much nicer than the yellow standard bulbs!


    Chrome strips on the grille, cheap easy simple modification but looks good.

    robin raised the coilovers from these pictures because his tyres were wearing out quickly and he couldnt get the tracking sorted, looking at these pics makes me wanna drop it back down.

    i have seen plenty of other a3's on here as low and lower than this so what do they do about tracking/tyre wear? just put up with it?

    Just get your alignment sorted. I'm running 1.5- on the rear and the wear is fine!
