    Can you tell me if there are different dampers fitted to the 8P A3 model variants please along with their part numbers

    Mainly looking at fitting a set of OEM dampers from an A3 2.0tdi 3 dr S-line to my 3 dr 2.0tdi Sport when I fit lowering springs

    Thanks for your time

    Hi Jonay

    would be great if you could get an s-line reg number so i can cross reference.
    shocks are not as easy as other parts to do

    Hi,

    Can you confirm that if you have two A3s, both with the same engine/FWD/gearbox/age/etc.. but one is a Sport and one is an S-line, will the dampers be the same??

    I'm keep hearing conflicting reports.

    Thanks.

    I'm trying to find this out too! I've got a 2010 SE sportback 1.6 TDI FWD and wondered if the SE dampers are the same as the sport and s-line dampers. I want to just upgrade the springs to either sport, or something as low as s line but with more comfort - but don't want to kill my dampers.

    Hi

    honestly i wouldnt say that they would be the same springs and shocks,
    the actuall only way to tell is by chassis number as for 2007 A3 there is 6 different front suspension set ups and that is only quattro models
