    If you're wanting it low then i'd say go for the Eibach Sportline springs...

    Id go cheaper coilies tbh mate.

    I've been looking into FK - 400, weitecs 500 and there's a few other ones about...

    If you do wanna go springs - H&R or Eibach tbh.

    BBS CK - Look the dogs mate!!!!! Make sure you get some locking nuts though - my mate got his wheels nicked the other day!

    Im thinking these atm - they seem cheap enough :D http://www.toys4cars.co.uk/index.php...ducts_id=22046

    As you may have read on another thread I'm having Eibach Pro's fitted next Saturday and (in theory at least) should see a 10mm drop over standard s-line ride height.

    I'll post up some before and afters so you can gauge for yourself.

    The 19" BBS CKs have come down a little to 1150 a set, this includes locking bolts.

    I have a few sets in stock.

    Give me a ring when you are ready.

    I'll post on here and let you know how much rubbing I get on Monday when my car is lowered on coilovers with my 19's.

    I honestly don't think adjustable damping will make that much difference to your rubbing - if you adjust them so stiff to reduce much travel then the ride will be ruined, and the range of adjustment is less than you might expect.

    I am loving those wheels. Not sure I'd want to go to 19's though - do they do them in 18"?

    I imagine I'd cry if/when I curbed them for the first time!!

    That's looks like it's on coilovers but the closet thing to get that drop with springs will be either the Eibach Sportline 50/40 kit or the H&R 50mm kit...

    When I go 20"s I'll let you know what arch work I have to do. I wish the A3 had a bigger lip otherwise you could just roll it quite easily had it done on my cousin's lupo yesterday no rubbing now and he's got an 8J on the back!

    yeah they do them in 18s but just dont look as good as 19s im loving the 19s on the red a3 my sline is stiff as hell you could run over a blue bottle and feel it so if i get coils or spring 19s and there better than sline in terms of ride il be v happy and yes kirbing would cause a tear lol but refurbs are cheap these days
