    hi all
    just bought a 2.0 tdi sport and want it lowering and sitting nicely, although i dont want to buy coilovers.

    wanting to go about 50mm just wondering if anyone has any pictures of any lowered around 45/50mm on 18s to see what it looks like and see if theres any scrape at all

    cheers,
    nathan

    I'd go with H&R springs, can cost a little bit more than the others, but are always well recommended. Not sure what the drop is as it is confusing working it out, SE sport and S-line are all different heights so depends where they measure it from.
    My old 3.2 sport on H&R's

    And on 19's

    No scraping at all, even on the 19's

    The drop is measured from the basic model i think Ju so a 50mm spring drop is only 25mm on a S-line.

    Yeah kind of thought that Paddy, just wasn't sure of the stages of drop. As for the ride quality, it's better than oem, that's why they are well recommended!

    As above mate, although really you need 18's as 17's will look a little small when dropped
