    Yes ,, there fitted on mine, very pleased for the money, although they don't drop as much as they say.
    Saying that this picture was taken shortly after they were fitted and it has settled down a little lower ...

    thanks for that. my SE spec suspension is really high at the front, probably a mix of the suspension and 16s?

    Mine was sitting on SE springs, the sportline say they will drop 45/50mm front and 35/40 rear :noway:
    What they will do is give you about 30mm which is a little lower than a standard sport/s-line.

    an interesting point made by someone on another forum, as the diesel engine is heavier than a petrol, we may see an increased drop at the front? fine by me!

    Even with the heavy diesel engine Eibach build there spring's for each application ie the spring's for your car will have a higher spring rate to compensate for the heavy diesel engine so if you buy a 30mm spring that is what you will get. If you fit spring's that are designed for a petrol engine then yes you will have more drop

    That's because the front arches on a4 are slightly higher than the rears,,, your be surprised how much difference a 30mm drop will make, sport and s-lines are only 20mm lower than an SE...

    If only this was true, I've fitted both eibach pro-kit and sportline both specific to my make and model and neither have given close to the promised drop, and I'm not the only one that's found this look on here and the A3 forum !!! I'm happy with the 30mm drop I've got now but had to get springs which should give a 40 to 50mm drop to achieve it !!!
