    2.0 TDi Lowering Springs

    I'd be very grateful if people could post up pics of their A3's with various different lowering springs on, stating what make they are and what drop they are supposed to have given. I'm really struggling to decide which ones to go for on mine as I'm very picky about the look they will give the car (i.e. lower at the front than the rear) as I really am not a fan of this look tbh. If possible I want it to be perfectly even (or as near as) at both the front & rear, are there any springs out there that can offer me this look??-btw, Coilovers unfortunately aren't an option for me as they're out of my price range at the mo!!
    All help/advise/recommendations will be gratefully received as it's doing my head in now looking for the right ones!!!

    Sound ok mate, would ideally like to see them fitted first though to see exactly what kind of drop they give...

    My Eibach Sportlines arrived this morning, booked in to get them fitted tomorrow morning! 50mm front and 40mm rear, if you look at the side shot of my car there is a bigger gap up front so I was a little unsure about 35mm all round, did this previously and my car looked like I was towing an invisible caravan, not good!



    By 1pm my car should be a lot closer to the ground, I'll bob a thread of it up once it's completed.....



    Getting quite giddy about the look of it when they go on!
