    So finally got round to lowering my car. Fitted some eibach springs and i can't fault them, there great.. i can't tell a difference in ride quality compared to stock and it definitely sticks much better around the corners. Also had a new hybrid turbo fitted and with the remap my car is flying. need to get it on a rolling road next. anyways some pics underneath!

    i bought mine from http: http://www.fr-rtuning-shop.co.uk/ and got the springs fitted at the same time. the drive is a lot better and pick up from 3k revs is insane and smoother.

    I assume they are the 40-50mm sportline Eibachs? Not the 35m Pro-kit?

    Yeah look low i think it must be the sportline kit but i hope its the pro kit as thats the one i was going to go for, i do like the look of them though, its just if i go up to 19's with that drop it will catch (or so i think)

    Which springs are they as I'm after the sportline kit, your car sits just how I want mine to.

    I think i may have to go for the conversion sooner than thought as i was just reading the thread about whining turbos and mine seems to have the same problem, hopefully my turbo will hang on a bit longer so i can start saving!! LOL

    I've just started upgrading my 140 TDI Sport - remap this friday, RNS-E and 18" RS6 alloys next week. I'd like to put Eibach's on and am thinking about a hybrid turbo too. Was yours a 140? Also, what did all the mods do to your insurance?

    Looks awesome!

    Are the shocks standard? How are they holding up?

    This may be one of the first mods i do to my newly purchased a3 :yum:
