    Hello this is my first post and am new to the forum!

    i got the car for my 18th birthday and have now had the car for almost 2 years! And I want to do something with it!

    Im sorry about the repost sure loads have people have asked this! but here we go, it is a 2009 a3 black edition 2.0 tdi! I think it already had sports suspension standard as is abit lower than a few none black editions I have seen! I am just after getting some reasonable priced suspension, springs/coilovers but don't want to effect ride comfort too much!

    i really want airbag suspension but can't justify spending around 2k on it! But my mate has a ml4 golf which is lowered! Although it handles amazing the ride is really hard! And does my head in!

    so basically I'm after opinions on suspension! I want a decent drop with better handling with good ride quality still!

    All help and advice will be much apriciated!

    thanks jordan

    So would you not recommend springs then? What sort of ride quality can I expect fr coilovers?

    thanks

    Totally depends on what you're looking for and how much you want to spend.

    The advantage of coilovers is that they are adjustable and can be set to exactly how you want. A lot of people buy springs then aren't 100% happy with the drop they give when fitted.

    If you like things to look exactly how you want, then go coilovers.
