      Hi Damian,,i´ll traveling to Germany next month. I i need to buy a set of coilovers for my A3 2.0 TFSI Sportback stage 3. actually i´ve OEM shocks with Eibach sportlines,. I´m looking for a coilover to use as a daily and track, between AP and Vogtlands wich is better for my use? and how much the cost of one of this sets shipped to Berlin. ( do you have Tax free option? )
      Thanks

        Morning, thank you for your post. I'd say the AP is the more popular option but for me the Vogtland kit just edges it on quality. Are you wanting to purchase the kit when you're in the UK or when you're in Germany?

      Hi Damian
      I'm looking to make my A4 (B7) 2WD 2.0T ride less crashy as the ride quality is back breaking. After reviewing your historic posts, I notice you recommend the B12 Prokit more often. I'm happy with my current S Line height but don't mind a slight drop, if I take the B12 option would it improve ride quality whilst retaining the handling?
      And, how much would it cost? what else provided in the kit?
      Thanks
      1. DPM
        DPM
        Afternoon,
        Thank you for your message.
        Yes the B12 kit is definitely one of the best options out there for a combination of handling improvement and ride with a superb build quality. The kit includes front and rear Bilstein B8 dampers with the Eibach Pro kit springs.
        £557 inc. VAT and delivery

        cool :) as the current setup is an S Line, will i be needed to trim any of the bump stops or will the original OEM bump stops be sufficient. If they need trimming, how much does it need to be trimmed?
        Nov 15, 2016

        The front B8 dampers have built in bump stops, the rear bump stops shouldn't need trimming.

      Hi
      My Alpina B3 biturbo is fitted with Bilstein suspension - developed by Birds BMW with Bilstein. This is very good, giving a compliant ride + good handling, far better than stock.
      I am considering an A5 3.0 tdi quattro instead but I found the (car) low speed bump compliance a bit firm.
      Can you suggest a kit that would improve the compliance but retain decent handling?....Bilstein B12 or other?
      Cheers
      Martin

        Morning,
        If budget allows then I'd say the Bilstein B12 Pro kit is by far the best option in terms of handling and build quality closely followed by the H&R Cup kit. If you want something a little more comfortable then the ST kit is worth considering.

        Thanks for your reply. So, the B12 kit will give a less harsh and more compliant ride than the standard sport and/or s-line set-up?

        I find it does yes. To me the Audi Sport and S-Line suspension is just stiff, not refined at all.

      Hey there, I hear you're the person to go to!
      I have a 2004, 1.6 A3, looking at coilovers, potentially lowering max of 100mm, any recommendations? Budget around £350 tops, although could probably stretch to £400 if they would be the world better.

        100mm would only be the maximum I'd need, that would just put me to the floor, minimum I'd need is probably 70mm

        It is an 8P1 yes

      hi damian....

      next week im going to be buying some coilovers for my AMK S3. Just wondering what you would recommend.....

      at the moment its a toss up between AP and Apex RDX's. I know the apexs are slightly more, but i don't know if that means they are better....
      what are the prices would you do on each of these?

        Very similar kits to be honest, I'd say the AP are the more popular option and offer a slightly better ride where as the Apex have a slightly better build quality.
        AP - £415
        Apex - £462

      Hi Damian - your thought and ideas on suspension mods for my A4 2.0 Tfsi S Line Avant Quattro Special Edition 107K miles. Has the S Line Special Edition 18" wheels
      Currently on standard S Line springs & dampers and suffers from the typical stance issue on quite a few S Line Avants. The rear springs have settled and looks about right, the front sits a good 30mm too high. Gary

        Afternoon, the only way to really get the perfect stance would be height adjustable coilovers. Did you have a budget in mind for what you wanted to spend?

        budget c. £500 for spring & damper. I was originally looking to do springs only, but I guess at the mileage would be a sensible approach to do both. Am I right in assuming the lowering dimensions qouted are for standard ( SE) non S Line models ? Would ideally like the ride to improve a little too, quite crashy on uneven roads ! Will be doing the RS4 RARB too.

        Coilovers are height adjustable where as a springs and shocks kit will give you a set drop.

        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.

      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?
