    These are the 50/40 springs I assume? I'm looking at getting the 30mm springs soon, B5 perches are also waiting to go on too. You fitting them yourself? Let us know how you get on if so and make sure you get some pics up too.

    Mac,

    Out of interest, what's your plan with the pinch bolts?

    I really want to fit mine on my drive, but am too scared of the pinch bolt!!!!

    Are you going to get a pair from the dealer? I was going to buy some from eBay but they might be made out of cheese.

    If you do go to the dealer, I'd be interested in the part number & price.

    Hope it goes well Mac. My mechanic had a nightmare with the pinch bolt and had to send the suspension arm to a specialist to have it drilled out after he attempted to cut it in the middle. Arguably a mistake on his part in the first place...

    Fingers crossed yours goes smoothly!

    I agree. I have a 3.0TDI SE running on Eibach 30mm lowering springs. They've been on about five months now, and I've never regretted the swap. On an S-Line, the improvement will be greater still, due to the God-awful ride on standard S-Line springs.

    Right gents had a nightmare, no problem at all with the pinch bolts, but when tightening the offside pinch bolt the suspension upright snapped, £241+vat (tps - £3.92 cheaper than Audi), anyway all done now, so will get some pics at the weekend when the rain stops, in the mean time here's a pic of the offending upright grrrr

    A true nightmare for you but I don't understand why it could snap when tightening. I would hazard a guess the mechanic has tried to spread it too wide causing a crack when stripping down and it's popped when tightening.

    Hardly worth the wait to be honest.... Haha

    only joking Mac, looks spot in mate, how does it handle and what's the ride quality like. I'm tempted with Eibachs on the avant but don't want to lose the comfort.

    B7_Fur......everywhere i have read it says the Eibachs IMPROVE the ride comfort as the OEM set up on S-Lines is very crashy........

    I have to admit the ride is so much smoother than the s-line springs, handles really well, overall a much better ride all round

    The rear seems to still be sitting quite high, or is it the angle of the shot
