    I would assume (but don't know for certain) that when Audi develop a model range they develop the whole platform and this would definitely include the suspension. Suspension is one of the key areas that defines the handling of a car so why on earth would audi not strive to improve this over a previous model generation???

    Which begs the question... Why on earth would you even consider putting an older set up on a current model!?!
    2009 A4 2.0 TDI (170) Avant S Line Exec. ​Quartz Grey, S Line suspension, Bluetooth phone prep low, AMI, DAB, Symphony III, Leather/Alcantara, rear sun blinds, heated/dimming/folding mirrors and cruise control. Mods so far: BBS LM (reps), needle sweep and dipping mirror on reverse. To come: spacers, rear window tint and badge delete.

    I know the A5 uses the same Air bag system but think it is unlikely the B7 will kit because the front struts are different
