    Hi all, sorry for all the questions lately, new to all this and trying to take in as much information as possible.

    I would like to lower my A4 30-40mm, no more really. I've had a look at Eibach springs but they seem to lower a little bit more than I'd like. I don't want to go the coilover route as they're too expensive what what I need to be honest.

    Are there any other makes out there that would be suitable? Also, where would be a good place to get them? I've heard H&R are good?

    Thanks in advance

    You want an eibach pro-kit, not thier "streetline" or whatever they're called.

    They lower the car about 20mm or so more than a sport, and imo it gives just the right height.

    Thats Craigs S4, with a 2.5 TDI Quattro Avant Pro-Kit installed.

    Thanks for the recommendation. That's the sort of height I'm after, with the 18s it should look a little lower I expect...

    Depending on what model you have you'll get a 30mm drop from the Pro kit and they're £153.50.

    I fitted the Eibach Pro kit to my B5 and the ride and handling has certainly been improved. Have to be honest though I really want it to sit about another 20mm lower than it does now. Number of people that don't beleive it's been lowered when they look at it :(

    fill your arches with some wider wheels or spacers and it will look much lower
