    Following on from a recent suspension discussion where Ess_Three mentions about wishbone angles, I thougth I'd take a look at my car.

    He says that when you lower the car to the point where the wishbones are pointing up, you start to lose out on the handling.

    Anyways, I got under my car to see how much I can lower mine before I get to this point, but was surprised to see that my wishbones already point up! The car is sitting on standard suspension.

    So it sounds like the S3 wishbone must be angled differently to the A3???

    Just thought I'd mention it before you guys with lowered cars start wondering about yours.

    No fair!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm gonna have a gander under my friends S3 later I think. Lowered A3's must have silly angles on their wishbones!!

    Time to sell the A3 and by a lotus I think! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
