    Hi everyone

    Odd question, but how low does the sump hang on a 54 plate TDI? I know on my previous 8L S3 the sump was quite low which meant i cracked it once being so low!

    I'd like to get started and lower the car soon but somebody told me the sump hangs really low and lower than my previous 8L S3? Is this true? I'll be getting 19's on there just after i get the suspension fitted.

    Thanks all

    AJ :)

    don't forget to make a thread when you've done this. I'm planning on dropping mine on a set of 19's however im scared i'll not get it low enough on coilovers and will have to opt for either 18's or air :ninja: - hopefully yours will give a good indication!!
