    They're basically KW's budget range, good quality kit for the money.

    I've heard good things about them.

    If I was going to go for coilovers they'd probably the lowest ranged/cheapest I'd consider.

    Quite (but not too) firm, but still very good, according to AMD Essex.
    Durable too.

    Hi mate thanks sounds like a good set up better than standard dampers(bouncy) with h&r springs...

    I'm running Eibach sportlines with standard Sport dampers and the ride is fine so far. Not at all bouncy. I would've thought the S3 dampers would handle a drop even better.

    Although you might still be better off going for the coilovers as one (or both) of the two main spring kits (h&r or eibach) only includes the front two springs for the S3, so it doesn't lower the rear at all.

    The rides good, as mentioned firm but not too firm so good for everyday road use.

    Give me a shout if you need any prices.

    APs as said are made by KW, so they are a decent kit for the money!

    Yeah, Eibach is front only, but H&R is front and rear.
