    Both broken on my 09 plate a3 black edition.

    phoned dealer in reading for a quote and was told can't buy just the springs need to get the rubber mounting bushes as well.
    seamed strange as they all come with different part no's.

    was £163 for 2 springs and 4 rubber bushes.

    can this be true?

    £163 for rear springs & bushes seems fair price tbh, if you wanted to get better springs, give Damian@dpm a shout as he can supply a complete better aftermarket set like eibach pro's, for fair prices & usually the rubber parts are reused tbh.

    Thanks
    Thought the price was ok.
    Seen eibachs for around £180 but then extra cost to fit etc.

    Just want sline springs to be honest

    I recently had same Mike, Two broken back s line spring. After messing around with euro parts and getting wrong spring.
    I went for eibach pro's like NHN has already said. Got them from DPM to. All around better in my mind! Worth it id say.
    I just changed the front mounts and bearings £76.99 from TPS.
