    went to get the four wheel alignment done today, once i got there they then deicded to tell me they didnt have the information too correct the camber :banghead: so i just got the toe done for now, and will find the camber out my self.

    anyone here know the correct camber? for a lowered s3?

    I love the look of an S3 dropped on it's 17's, even though most prefer 18's.

    How's the handling? I wanted to just lower but most people on here advised against it as the handeling apparently goes to pot when lowering on standard shocks!

    handles seems ok too me, seems to be lot better entering and exiting the corners, will give you a better answer once its been fully aligned

    Thanks Gav I might go down your route of just springs and tie bars then get shocks another time

    i got them from ebay from a seller in germany, were about £22 posted i think. had them on my previous car, but look better on S3 for some reason.

    thanks for the pics gav. i've got the h& r springs on standard shocks. seems better then OEM but a little bouncy at the mo. just saving for the tie arms and bilstens. car looks alot better when its just fractionally lowered i rekon. good job.

    Looks nice, the 17's look really good on it :o.k: Almost makes me wish I kept mine instead of going for the 18's.
