    does anyone know ? I am 99% about to buy some but want to check they offer the best ride quality as the roads around here are terrible. I will be matching them to Bilstein dampers. thanks

    Get on and order them, from everything I've read H&R and Bilstein is the best combination for the S3, if I keep the car it's what I'll be getting.

    Think they only make one set for the S3 -25mm if my memory serves me correctly. Where you getting them for that price out of interest?

    I think you want the Bilstein B8 or sprint dampers to go with the H&R springs, £125 is a very good price for H&R S3 springs!

    Just to let you know about another option.
    I found that there is a Bilstein/Eibach suspension kit available which I have just purchased.
    See link http://www.yatego.com/index.htm?sid=3Y11...tity=1&x=89&y=7
    I have managed to get this kit for around £80 cheaper that I could buy it in the UK, including shipping.

    i believe the h&r springs are a better ride than eibach ? i had eibach springs before and they did crash and jar a fair bit on poor road surfaces. im looking to improve the handling but also the ride
