    Think it depends on whar model you have - if yours is an s-line the 35mm won't lower much more than your standard s-line springs.

    The s3 ones are 25mm but they genuinely lower the car 25mm or more.

    I have them in my car and they are fantastic!

    Depends what you want mate to be honest

    What type of A3 do you have?
    What size are your wheels?
    What are the road conditions like where you live?
    Have you had lowered cars before?

    No doubt it will improve the handling of the car but you will sacrifice comfort slightly and if you have warrenty on the car any suspension related claims from Audi will be void if you lower it.

    The other option is coilovers - you can now get decent coilovers for under 400. Going a lot lower on just springs will put more pressure on the standard shocks so in the long run, if you want lowness, coilovers might be for you!

    djgc, I think there's probably springs out there that would do the job and your shocks are prob fine for 2 yrs old but, I personally would go the coilover route, you have a high performance car that needs appropriate suspension, and, if you're doing 19's at some point you may well need to alter the ride height, obviously with just springs this won't be an option. I know where my money would go....

    Check out BBSBOY's thread on here of his Ibis S3 on stock wheels with H&R springs - looks perfect!

    Check mine out for Sprint Blue S3 on H&R springs and 19" BBS CH

    I would link you to pics but they do not work in work
