      Forgot to mention Damian its had the S3 facelift conversion done on the car it has the 18" rotor arm replicas 18X8.0J offset 45.Would like it to sit low as the s3 or little bit lower. with a good comfortable ride without the bounce when driving.Regards

        With that mileage I'd say you'd be best off changing both the shocks and springs so for within your budget one of our budget coilover kits may be your best option.

      Morning, I'd say the best option would be a good quality springs and shocks kit. Did you have a budget in mind?

      Hi Damian recently purchased a3 tdi sline 170 3 door FWD. The problem i have it sits too high when i look at other s lines they sit lower !!. the suspension is very bouncy when driving even on level roads like a bouncy castle. I feel the setup fitted to the car may not be s line set up !!. Can you please tell the best option to lower the car front and back also having a comfortable ride and not bouncy ?thanks

      Hi Damian.
      I'm looking at getting the Eibach Pro Spring kit. My car is a 57 Audi A3 2.0tfsi SLine (FWD). For my car there are 2 options, the only difference is the front axle weight. My car manual says the max front axle weight is 1080kg. Do I need the spring set for 1065kg or 1165kg???
      Hope you don't mind helping me out. I'll get them from you anyway, any discounts coming up?
      Thanks for your time,
      Rob

      Hi Damian Im considering getting some coilovers been advised by AMD Essex to go the bilstein route and to just get the b14s as KWs customer service is poor. but i was also wondering about the B16 ride control set as well what are they like?

      thanks James

      Morning, I'd say the AP kit gives a slightly better ride quality where as the Vogtland kit has a slightly better build quality.

      You'll need to discuss that with who you purchased the kit from or KW them selves.

    18. DPM

      The AP, ST by KW and KW all have the same lowering range.

      I'd go for the ST between the AP and ST kits.

      Afternoon,

      I guess weather or not they go low enough is really down to personal opinion.

      How low are you looking to go?

      Yes the H&R kit is a good option.

      I'm running eibach sportline spring springs on s line dampers.Thank you very much for the info.

      Very similar in terms of comfort but I'd say the ST kit will give a more refined ride.

      If you were running the Sportlines on standard springs then I'd say yes.

      Wich one is more comfortable?do you think they will be better than eibach sportline?both st and ap.??Thank you!!

      Afternoon,

      Thanks for your question.

      Both kits are made by KW in Germany with the ST X being the next level up in terms of build quality and materials used. If your budget allows then I'd say definitely go for the ST X kit as the step up in quality is noticeable but saying that the AP kit is still an excellent choice for the money.

      Morning,

      It will fit but the spring rates will be incorrect for the car.

      No, you'll just need to use your existing top mounts and bearings.

      Is there anything else I will need other than the coilovers?

      Afternoon,

      The JOM kit will give you a better ride quality where as the FK AK Street has a slightly better build quality, both very similar kits though.

      Hi,

      Im looking for a set of budget coilovers for a 2007 a3 2.0tdi and was wondering which ones you would recommend. Looking to drop around 50-60mm.

      Thanks.
    36. DPM
      DPM
      Ok well ideally you need 32mm but we only have them available in 30mm or 35mm so you can have them slightly shorter or get the 35mm and cut them down.

      A pack of 10 delivered is £29.95.
