Advice sought for cheap lowering options - 1998 B5 1.9 TDi
As per title I am looking at changing the springs on my standard 1998 B5 TDi sallon to something that will improve the stance and also add some improvement to the handling while still being able to retain the original shocks. This is a limited budget modification so cheaper is better!
I see several options and welcome advice and opinion on all:
1. Cut original springs
2. Source used OEM springs from an S4 version and fit?
3. Source a cheap set of new springs like these:

I have no Audi experience, but I have retro fitted sportline suspension to a 1990 Mercedes 190E. I used genuine new OEM parts and was very impressed with the quality and effect, BUT, my circumstances now are somewhat different and buying a full suspension package is now out of my budget.
The standard ride is a little too soft and wallowy. The car is a daily driver and so not pushed hard and I have no plans for any engine mods or future suspension upgrades.
