    Hi

    I'm having trouble locating a pair of aftermarket replacement rear springs for my 2001 A3 1.8T Quattro. ECP don't even list the Quattro as a separate model from the 1.8T, but I'm sure the springs on the rear will be different for the 4WD?

    I found this confusing listing on ebay: KILEN Coil Springs AUDI A3 ALL QUATTRO 96-03 REAR 2 NEW | eBay UK

    It says it only fits the 1.8T and 1.9TDI quattros, yet it clearly says "Not suitable for cars with Sport Chassis". Now, I was under the impression that all of the 1.8T and 1.9TDI quattros were sport models. Am I wrong, or are they just being silly and they are in fact the right part?

    Thanks

    I've recently purchased and fitted a pair of FK coilovers for my A3 1.8t Quattro, got them delivered for £220 via eBay. Follow link below if you're interested. The seller also sells springs but not sure if he has ones for quattro. Free next day delivery as well.
