Looking for A3 lowering advice
I have a suspension related question (I know, sorry..) I have spent some time searching through old posts concerning lowering 8P A3s and unfortunately I still feel I have to ask
My girlfriend has recently purchased a black 04 A3 with Attraction spec, I don't know if that whats it's called in the UK, but in Ireland it is the least sporty setup.
Her aim is to get the car looking similar to an s-line A3 (without the badges etc) - A3s with 5-arms are not as common where we live as they appear to be in the UK.
Looking through the sticky pictures thread above, the desired look would be like Marriedblondes A3 with the 5-arms/RS6s and the Eibach pro-kit? (audi_beach_1.JPG)
So my question is what would be the best way to get from the standard ride height to like that illustrated in Marriedblondes pictures?
In a lot of threads about lowering on here, the start point was the sport or s-line suspension, hence I am not sure about lowering from the standard non-sport set-up.
Are the springs the only difference between the standard suspension set-up and s-line set up? If so would that be the route to go? Or would non-OEM kit be better
My main concerns would be comfort and of course it would be nice to keep the cost to a minimum
Thanks in advance for any recommendations you can give
