    Springs and ARB's!

    Many thanks to Damian for a very fast delivery of the ARB's! Great service and would buy again.

    Postie also dropped off something else:





    And also the S3 cover from Seeb, cheers

    As you can see in the background, Audi kindly gave me there A4 2.0tdi while mines in for a couple of days. Nice car but no leather. I do like the rns-e though, better screen res and takes my 16gb sd car but is very very laggy.

    Springs, ARB's and new set of tyres are being fitted Tuesday

    Car needs a good clean but ARB's, springs and new tyres are now on:





    Its given it quite a good drop but im finding them abit bouncy at the moment, maybe they just need tome to settle? The ARB's have a made a huge difference though, hardly any body roll around the corners and hardly any under steer.

    So what you think?

    Is it normal for the H&R springs to make your ride bouncier? Thought the springs were supposed to "stiffen" up your ride?

    They are stiffer but have a bouncy edge to it, hard to explain!

    Hi mate, didn't I read somewhere that Matt Andrew was thinking of changing his CK's in anthracite for something new? They suit the Ibis a treat. Maybe worthwhile a PM to him if you like them? It was a couple of weeks ago, so not sure if they've gone already or not.

    Are they 25mm spring you have fitted ? They look low if they are just 25, but are s3's naturally lower than a normal a3?
