    How much lower is S3 suspension to a sport model ,I have a sport SB that seems rather high :blink:

    Secondly, If i drop 19 oem alloys on my car, What realignment is needed if at all ?Is there a max tyre width ?

    And LOL.deep breath ..has anyone ever cut there existing springs down ?We used to do this all the time years ago .. Im not being funny but i like my comfort and i am not really keen on silly low,So my exhisting suspension is very smooth and in great nick .Paying out massive amounts is a no no, As we are due another baby very soon...
    All else fails i will simply spend and not tell her indoors :eyebrows:

    Do not cut springs! Seriously weakens them.

    If your not after silly Low then you may well be happy with 19s without a suspension change.

    Sport is 10mm lower than standard and sline/ black edition are 25mm lower than standard. S3 is 35mm lower than standard.

    So S3 is 25mm lower than sport.

    Maybe wrong someone is sure to confirm
