GmbH Suspension and dot colours - My spring has just snapped
My rear spring went "Boing" at the weekend and a chunk of it fell off my car. It is sitting on my coffee table at the moment :-)
Thing is my S3 (BAM - Oct 2002) came with the 18" RS/TT alloys as standard from the factory. Now I am led to believe that as a result my S3 has GmbH suspension on it. Also I have pink dots on my springs.
Thing is I spoke to Audi and although they are usually really helpful, the parts team said that the replacement spring will have 3 silver/grey dots on it, however I don't think this is right. They searched for the correct part on their system using my VIN number and said you need parts for a "2003 model".
I'm unconvinced and I don't want to replace my spring and have it look too high.
I have the part number that he quoted me on my desk at work so I'll post it tomorrow am.
Can anyone help me which part number I need as I want to keep my S3 standard and I want to make sure I get the correct spring fitted. I checked out this recent post by Funky Junky and I don't fancy going down that route with the grey dots....
