    Audi Drive Select (ADS) 1BL Ride Height

    Can anyone confirm the ride height for a A4 with ADS?

    Apparently its the same as the sport suspension which is 20mm lower than standard suspension, is this true?

    Not speaking from experience but my understanding is that the standard 'sport' springs as fitted to the S Line models and ADS suspension both sit 20m lower than SE suspension. Only the optional S Line springs give you -30mm...

Mods so far: BBS LM (reps), needle sweep and dipping mirror on reverse. To come: spacers, rear window tint and badge delete.

    Yeah that's what I've read but nothing concrete, I will ask at Audi if I go there.

    Reason I want to know is, if I buy a set of springs (eibach pro kit) that lower the standard suspension by 35mm, if you have ADS like me and 'if' it's true ADS models are 20mm lower than standard already your paying £200+- for a 15mm drop.

    I've noticed eibach do a Sportline kit which give a bigger drop but I can't find any anywhere that fit the 3.0 TDi Quattro.....

    I can completely relate to your post... I toyed with the idea of springs but as we already have the S Line springs (-30mm) it works out to be a lot of money for negligible difference.

    keep us posted as to what you find out

    Asked around about the drop...

    Basically all drop figures are given from standard suspension

    So a 30mm aftermarlet spring kit would make no difference on s line suspension, a 10mm difference on sport (+audi drive select) and ovbiously 30mm on standard.

    Hope that clears it up
