    Would you believe it.... Just getting ready to sell my 97 A3 1.8T and I started hearing a strange noise from the front of the car. Just investigated and have found one of my coil springs has snapped!

    Anyone know where I might be able to get a used spring from as I dont really want the hassle and cost of replacing for a new set.

    To be honest you dont have much choice but to get new springs, unless you can find a car with the same miles as yours in a scrappy and take them off that.

    Any other way its goign to sit lop sided, iirc 2 springs cost me about £120 for the parts.

    I have two used front lowerering springs once fitted to my '98 1.8T Sport if interested?

    I have the full set of 4 if needed.

    I can't think of the brand of them off the top of my head, sorry.
