    quattro coilover kit on fwd???

    Hey Guys,


    A mate of mine has offered me a coilover kit which was taken off his quattro B7. I have a fwd B7 and was wondering if it will fit ok?
    Will I have an issue with the spring rate?
    Will the kit go straight on?


    Thanks in advance.

    I'm guessing not, as the quattro system in the A4 is more than an electronic gizmo like on the A3. Although I don't know for certain...

    Easy way to check would be to ring the manufacturer of the kit and as if it's suitable for your specific model of car. What make and model coilover kit is it??

    start at the back and see if it fits, so what if the springs are more uprated, just wind it down more lol
