    Which lowering springs to buy? Help please

    Hello all,

    i have just bought an Audi A5 3.0tdi Quattro sport and want to lower the car to give it a better look. Im not too bothered about the ride being too hard but don't know which springs to buy. The choices are H&R sport 35mm and the H&R ?? 25mm (don't know the exact name) or the Eibach pro ones. Any advice would be great. I want the car to sit quite low but not look too chavvy

    thanks lee

    Is it an S line ? it will be 10mm lower than normal with S line springs so add that to the equation when choosing

    Damian, I was hoping for the wheels to sit 1 finger above the arch but no more really? I personally dont like the look when the wheel is under the arch. thanks lee

    Blackie - would it rub at all with the H&R Pro lowering springs on 19's and H&R spacers 20mm front 25mm rear? I will look into getting them too i think. Do you know how much they cost?

    thanks Lee

    Hi guys.
    For the guys that have put springs and spacers on do you have any problems with rubbing?
    Im thinking about putting 30mm eibach springs and 20mm spacers all round.
    does anyone have this spring spacer combo on there car, mine is a 2.7tdi sport. If any1 has any pics would really appreciate if you could show me.
    Cheers Chris.
