    Looks good. I've got some Koni springs in my shed waiting to be returned to my A4, I think they are either 35mm or 40mm. The garage I brought my A4 from changed the Koni lowering springs for, what I am convinced are, A4 Allroad springs as it sits up far higher than a standard A4. The excuse was they didn't want it looking too low while sitting on the forecourt as it may have put of potential buyers (even though it's been 'touched up' by Autovogue). Fortunately they gave me the Koni springs when I bought it, I've just got to find the time to put them back on now.

    Hopefully this will sort out some of the handling issues as it rolls about like a ship in a storm and jumps all over the place at the merest hint of a bump in the road (not fun when I'm used to the go-kart like handling of a lowered and stiffened Mk1 Punto Sporting).

    Hi
    Yes does look good :)
    Nice one
    The Koni shocks are yellow as they are the sports adjustable shocks
    The springs will be a different colour from yellow
    The ride height looks cracking ;)
    Does the handling feel any different?
