    Hi All,
    I just wanted to know if anyone swapped their s-line suspension (not sport) over to the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit? Is the ride softer and more forgiving now. Has the handling improved? After owning a 3.2 v6 s-line for a month I really need to change the suspension its awful, just sooo hard lol.

    The first thing I'd say is you'll get a much more refined ride with the Bilstein B12 kit over standard Audi S-Line suspension.

    Hi Damien, thanks for the response. So by 'refined' you mean the ride on the B12 kit is not as firm as the S-Line? It is the only reason why I want rid of the s-line suspension, lowering it is a small added bonus.

    B12 is one of the best kits you can fit onto the Audi Sline, its much more comfortable and not as 'crashy' as the S-line suspension. it will lower it a fair bit than the S-line... what size alloys will you be running with the B12s?

    Thanks for the reply Ash. I will have the BBS Speedline Split rims 18s. From what I have read the sline suspension is already lowered 10mm. The B12 kit should lower the car a further 20-25mm I believe?

    The ride with the B12 kit will still be firm but it won't be crash like the standard S-line suspension.

    S-line is around 15mm lowered over factory so the B12 Pro kit will give you around a further 15mm.
