    H&R Springs

    Has anybody fitted H&R springs to their Cabriolets? I've got a broken rear coil so I need to replace them but I'm unsure which to go for.I'd like to lower it but it seems they only do a 30mm drop for the cabriolets but a 50/40mm drop for the saloons/avants. I always thought that the avant springs were the same as the cabriolets?

    Is it FWD or Quattro?

    The springs for the cabrio are specific only to the cabrio and different compared to the ones for the avant.

    The lower 45mm drop you mention is for the avant Quattro models only and the 35mm for the avant FWD models only.

    Thanks for the info. Damien. I notice they list a 50\40 drop as a full spring and shocker kit. Is this saloon and avant only too?
