    Hi,
    I have an A3 2.0 FSI petrol 2004.
    With 18's on and was wanting to lower by 40mm.
    Phoned a couple of places today and one place said i can only lower a max of 25mm!!
    The other place said a max of 30mm?
    Are they thinking my audi has the 25mm lowered sport suspension?
    As it hasn't?

    Any help from anyone that has lowered this type of car would be mucho appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I put H&R springs on mine and it lowered it by 35mm and that was from sport suspension.

    In my opinion it now looks just right:icon_thumright:

    I ran my S-line with Eibach streetline kit (-55mm or -60mm cant remember) which lowered it by 30mm from stock.

    Think the S3 is 35mm lower over standard i believe. so not full of knowledge but i also think other S3 owners on here have lowered further. Maybe 40mm is achieveable but don't know what you would need to do this correctly.

    35mm should be a nice lowering on it.

    Here you go, Paul on here no owns it (gti_jazz_blue) I didn't mind the ride it was obviously firmer than stock but I didn't object. Paul on the other hand swapped the suspenion out as he found it too firm!!!!

    Why not just get Audi to fit sports suspension to your car. You won't lose your warranty and you'll know that the parts and work are good quality. I don't particularly like cars that have been lowered too much as it detracts from the original look of the car. Audi sports suspension IMO. More than enough.
