    Been offered a set of coils 55mm strut same as my A3's, but they're off a MKV golf TDi - kerb weights are within similar, also I know certain springs are listed as being compatible with a few VAG cars too. I've been told that they will fit but just wanted a second opinion on whether there will be any issues... Most other bits are transferable between the VAG range so maybe he's right??

    Any help guys?

    they should be fine as long as they are both FWD, dont think there is a difference between 3&5 door, could always be worth pm'ing damien at DPM, hes been really helpful with stuff like this before

    Double check that spring loads are the same as I think DSG boxes might be heavier than a manual!!!!!!!!

    I looked into this and yes TDI+DSG = one heavy front end! Defo worth considering as most of the good manufacturers list different rates for just spring kits between petrol/TDI. The cheaper ones dont so whether its a major issue or not is anyones guess!

    Yes it needs to be either manual/DSG specific.
