    TT magnetic ride

    Hi looking for a little bit of knowledge from you guys...
    Looking at a new S3 (runs n hides) and thinking of spec'n the magnetic ride.
    Problem is its rare on an S3 but standard on some tt's.
    Is it a worth while feature but more importantly does it cause any issues if i lower the car.... can you remap the dampers so to speak to compensate etc?
    Cheers Gav
    V8 baby... oh yeah

    I think both H&R & Eibach do spring kits that are compatible with MR, but it may be worth speaking to Damian at DPM to confirm.

    Hi Gavin,

    Cant give you any advice re lowering, but my wife has the magnetic ride option on her S3. I actually find it very good, for the majority of running its left on the normal setting, but when you get a good section of twisting road and are in the mood to press on, the sport setting really firms up the suspension. It can be a bit jarring on really rough roads, but then you can always revert back to the softer setting. I would certainly add it to the spec list if I was planning a new one.

    cheers
