    They're from a mark 4 golf/A3 but probably fit an S3

    Afraid not, Quattro drive system is very different, also S3 rear anti rol bar is definately bigger than the standard A3 Quattro or not.

    well according to my H&R product list (got it from H&R guy on the Motorshow in Essen) there are 2 different sets of springs for the S3.
    The comfy ones and the sporty ones.
    They both set the car a bit lower, however the dynamics (if thats the correct word) are different. The guy advised me to go for the comfy lowering springs because the sporty ones are really really sporty and not lower compared to the comfy ones.
    If your goal is to lower the car but not to make it bounce, the H&R comfy springs should do the job. AFAIK Eibach do A3 springs, but not S3 (correct me if I'm wrong). Because of the fact that the S3 is quite a lot heavier compared to a normal A3 I would think that Eibach would not be the best option for the S3.

    Eibach themselves have given me a part number for springs for the S3, althouigh I must admit that I thought they'd stopped selling them.

    Do you know the part number of the comfy H&R springs and where I can get them from.

    Not sure which way to go yet.
