    Hi,

    I am after some advice on Suspension for a 2002 A3 1.8T.

    When i purchased the car it came with some 15" 5 spoke alloys and since then i have purchased some 17" 6 spoke Audi wheels. These wheels are making the car sit slightly to high and i would like to change out the suspension and bring them down about 1 inch and a half.

    What manufacturers would people reccomend? SPAX etc...
    What kind of price would i be looking at?
    Where is a good place to look ?
    Will this effect my warruntee?
    any other advice?

    Thanks

    this would affect your warranty if you tried to make a claim with something regarding to the suspension.
    Do not go for spax, preferable along the lines of bilstein, koni and H&R for manufacturers

    NOT spax .. cheap rubbish.

    Koni, Bilstein,H&R, KW are the ones to look for.

    www.motorsportworld.co.uk are normally pretty good on price.
