    Im about to get myself a B6 1.9 tdi Advant..

    First thing on the list is some lowzzz..

    I want to run 18s, close arch gap BUT want to keep comfort!

    Im not up for coilovers and just want some lowering springs..

    What Eibach spring should I go with?

    Cheers!

    I fitted Apex along with B5 perches not Eibach about £70 cheaper and i have to say they ran very much like the stock sport springs, i had them on my 18" RS6 reps and looked great worth considering:

    All depends how low you want it, for a subtle look go for the Pro and for a more aggresive look go for the Sportline.

    Do I need to run b5 perches with the sportline kit?
    Ordo the front springs drop more than the rear ?
    Thanks

    You don't "need" to have them with the kit but they make the car look level.

    Mine's pro without b5 perches, really think it looks better with them though in fact I'm on the hunt (among a million other wanted parts).

    I'm confused. My Eibach box say Pro-kit / Sportlines.

    Which ones do I have?
    [​IMG]

    I really want them on the car but apprehensive about the car being too low to tow the caravan with. I'm only on 235/45/17 wheels.

    I could be wrong but I think that the pro-kit springs are black and the sport-line ones are red. I would say they use the same box for both. Does it have a label on the box with the part number on? If so check it on their web site.

    Easiest way to tell is to look at how much they lower the car by. Pro lower 30mm, and sport lower 50mm.

    Also I think welshquattro is right about the colour as my sport lines on my Bora were red.

    Cool, so a 30 mm drop on a car that already has saggy suspension shouldn't affect the towing much then.

    Cheers.

    "Perches" are the bottom spring mounts on the front struts.

    So what's the difference between b5 and the original b6 perches say when you fit eibach or apex springs.

    The gap on the front arches is bigger than the back so by adding b5 perches which lower it slightly it makes the car look level. I think the b5 perches lower by 15mm compared to the b6 ones.

    Had sportline springs in an Astra a few years ago, loved them, the car handled like a go-kart. Front was nice and low, wish the rear was as low though

    Do these B5 perches strip off their struts and bolt directly to the B6 ones?

    You could or buy new from Audi. Sometimes a set will come up for sale on here.

    Either that or try Audi/VW dealer or TPS for new ones. Not too dear if you can get them.

    So I've decided (maybe :/ ) 30mm Eibach pros with b5 perches, I will be replacing the stock sport springs - so therefore eibach springs on 04 plate sport shocks - would this work well or just stick with sport springs and install perches
    All help appreciated
