    There is no such thing as best it all comes down to what price you want to pay and what the desired effect is.

    Now stripped and playing with an uprated Cryo treated engine fitted with bigger turbo,water/methanol,uprated injectors etc etc.Wanting 400 bhp and 500 lb torque.

    Never a better word said, everyone has a different opinion on everything so if I was to like coilovers the next person would say they're **** & just use new shocks & springs, its down to the individual, but a constant I've seen & know given got myself is the eibach pro 30mm springs are very good, taken all the bounce out of my car but hasnt replaced with hardness, but I also have FSD's aswell, so take what you want, from that, but everyone I know whose got eibach pro's have said they're very good, maybe try these 1st before expense of coilovers.

    & no milltek isnt the only shop on the corner, there's loads that can build an exhaust for you, look around, its just milltek is the most well known & yes they're good but if its just a noise thing then whats the point, I'd buy for realtime improvements to the car not just to say I've got a milltek which is why since I've owned an s3 mapped & s4 mapped & a3 mapped but never had a milltek to date, doesnt really make worthwhile for me & the cost, where as the suspension change has improved the car alot & 1st time ever done on any of my vag cars I've owned.

    Milteks sound good - heard one on a mates S3 not so long ago.

    Blueflame build some good ones too - we had one on our LCR and sounded a tiny bit louder than standard while cruising with when you open it up - sounded awesome.

    Defo need a turbo back to get the max out of a S3.

    Coilies - there's lots about now....

    KW do good ones but they are fairly pricey (for me anyway) at 1k+.

    As DevonMikey says - its down to tastes and what you want. Whats soft for you may be harsh for me...

    Chat to the guys at Awesoem GTI or DPM, they should be able to advise you on soemthing suitable for your needs..

    So back to the first basic question you need to work out for yourself. What effect do you want from fitting the exhaust/coil overs and what is your price range for the items before fitting cost.

    Milltek is an ok product, but it's their marketing and distribution that persuades people it's the only option. If you want a turbo back exhaust then Milltek is an obvious option for an Audi. Othewise Supersprint and Remus are worth looking at - less known in VAG circles these days, but a far superior quality product.

    As for coilovers, just be aware that spending more doesn't necessarily make them best suited for road use - the likes of H&R, Bilstein etc are great on the track, but too hard for road use.

    Uh Mikey I hope you wernt referring to me cause I was actually backing you up on your comment not this unconstructive newbie, if he knew you as I do from your previous past posts he'd know he was talking out of his backside, I have amended my post above to reflect this as he obviously posted before I could click SUBMIT

    As most suspension kits offer different levels of ride v comfort. One person may be happy with having their kids throw up in the back, other may not.

    You should try the options fitted to a car before you buy.

    Try before you buy.....
