    Could someone please measure the distance from wheel center hub to edge of fender and tell the suspensions setup (separated shocks and springs).

    Now looking for new setup for my S3 and coilovers would be nice with the possibility to adjust the ride height.
    I`m going to have 235/40/18 tires and hope to have nice balance (tiny gap between tires and fender and front bit of lower than rear).

    I was thinking about Bilstein B8, Spax, or Koni sports with H&R, eibach or some other "quality" springs.
    The car will see some laps on track but 95% on roads..

    yes
    i just changed the shocks and springs.
    the standard arbs and drop links fitted back on easily on the front and back.
    As i said back was so easy. anyone can do it in a couple of hours.
    the fronts were a pig and took alot longer.

    I changed the shocks and springs back to standard and im very happy with it ride height is fine and comfort is spot on some times things are best left as standard.
