    Has anyone had any problems with fitting Eibach Sportlines to their A3 S-line?
    I love the way the car sits and have heard good reports about the ride.
    I am just concerned that with it being so low that I might have problems with speed bumps?

    My car is on Eibach sportlines. The ride is pretty comfy over normal roads but firm over bumpier than average roads.

    As for whether or not you'll have problems with speedbumps... it really depends on the speedbumps you go over. The bumps that span the entire width of the road I've never had a problem with, but the smaller island type speedbumps can be tricky. There are a few around my area that will catch the bottom on my car, but the majority (99%) are fine.
    If you've got 3-4 people in the car with you then I would expect half of those speedbumps to pose a bit of a problem though.

    Cheers for that Ads.
    I must admit the look of the sportline springs are loads better than the pro-kit.
    Do you have spacers on?

    Yeah, the pro-kit hardly looks lowered.
    No spacers on mine. My wheels are a lower offset (ET45) and are wider than A3 wheels, so they sit more flush.

    You lads prefer springs over coilovers? I have coilovers but not sure whether to swap to springs

    I have 10mm spacers and had to remove the arch screw from mine. Speed bumps are like mountains round here!

    If it's the front spoiler your worried about, I've never had a problem. The sportlines will be fine.
