    When its on smaller wheels it looks a LOT lower, need 18's to deal with all the speedbumps around the place :wtf:

    Here it is the day before the new kit got fitted with its 18's freshly on......I was getting vertigo driving it :)

    When i get my A3 in the next few weeks im going to buy the £175 JOM adjustable coilover kit from DPM. I just want the stance not so much the handleing as i wont be attending many track days etc....Plus you get 1 year warrenty for piece of mind. Cheap and Cheerfull i say :arco:

    Hi there heres my a3 1.8t droped on fk coilovers + adjustable drop links the dampening are fixed (non adjustable) The setup is firm but comfortable.I fitted them back in may this year and had no problems running Ascarl Cuervo 18s with 215/40/18 summer wheels. now the weather geting bad and being winter ive put my 17s back on. I could go lower as coilover are set to just over half way but i wont get out of my drive way.......
