    Lowering on 18's...

    I've got 18" alloys on my 2004 A3 Tdi Sport 140. Not sure if this has been asked before but search isn't helping much...

    What are my options in terms of lowering? I'm only looking for a very subtle drop, maybe 20-25mm, 30mm max. Would any springs with this drop fit with 18's without any other issues such as rubbing etc?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Just wanting to weigh up my options...

    You would be best off changing both the springs and shocks but if you just wanted to do the springs then you could pretty much just straight swap them for a set of something like the Eibach Pro springs and they shouldn't give you any rubbing problems.

    As my A3 is a Sport model (with I believe lower suspension already) would these springs then drop the car by less than 30mm?

    If you have factory Sports suspension this is around 10mm lower so you will need to take this off any quoted drop.
