    Recently had the Eibach Pro Lowering Spring kit fitted to my S3 on standard shocks on Monday 10th Dec.
    For some reason the car doesn't look like its sitting right.
    The boot is empty and there is nothing else in the car.
    Can you give me your opinions please.

    Is it possible the kit has been fitted the wrong way round?

    You cannot fit the springs the wrong way round. Give it a few weeks to settle!

    The ride quality is great, perfect for UK road driving. Not harsh at all, and hasn't bottomed out over pot holes or speed bumps.
    Its a little bit stiffer than standard which is what I wanted over the OEM setup.

    I'd like to lower my car but don't want to part with £1500 buying the springs, dampers and tie rods.

    If I could get away with just buying some springs for road use I might be tempted.

    whats does the camber seem like ?

    I haven't checked the camber so couldn't say. Will try and get some pictures if there is any day light left when I get home.

    I have the same set up with the standard shocks and when they were first fitted the front was higher from before but it is now settled and looks good!

    also the rears were looking like they needed adjustable tie bars as there was a bit of negative camber
