    Lowering springs

    Wasnt gonna mess about with my car but its started already lol So does anyone know which are the best lowering springs to fit to my 2010 2.0 tdi A6? im not fussed about being the lowest i just want the back down a bit more so it sits more level. I think it needs just down a touch front and rear to make it look nicer.

    2013 BMW 535d M-Sport Alpine White
    2004 Lancer Evolution 8MR FQ-340 Palma Red

    I'd go for a set of coilovers if you can afford them.

    If not i'd say go for H&R springs.

    I've been quite happy with the Eibach Pro Kits I have fitted to my avant... sits fractionally lower than S-Line spec, but not as jarring in terms of ride quality.

    However, if it is all about looks, you may be better off getting some cheap-ish coil-overs, so you can adjust the stance exactly as you prefer it. There are about a billion options out there for coilovers, but presuming you are not aiming for kidney-smashing race handling, you could look for opinions on brands like KW (Variant 1's or Street Comfort) and AP.

    Mine is also a daily driver, so I can appreciate where you are coming from.

    I got my springs from Larkspeed, but that was simply due to them having the best price on the kit I wanted (originally I was chasing a Bilstein B12 kit, but after many months of being d!cked about by Bilstein re supply problems, I opted for an Eibach Pro / Koni FSD setup instead).

    I can also thoroughly recommend the H&R anti-roll bar kit if you are interested in sharpening up the handling without killing the ride comfort
