    I think the Sportlines are only 50mm on the front, the rears are only 40-45mm, gives a slight nose down stance which I like!

    very nice. Are these just the springs on standard shocks? would that improve the handling or are you going for just the looks?

    If im right reason for the 35 - 40 and front 50 to get the right balance, as if you notice now your audi is lower in the front than the back at a slant

    Hey, I have excatly same model as your car mate (red) Had any problems so far? with shocks, camber, rubbing (with lots of weight) How much harder is the ride than s-line sport set up. These seem like a nice cheap upgrade. Im also thinking about s3 upgrade, bumper wont rub will it ? Thanks!
