    Ok, thanks for that. can you tell me the difference between the KW adjustable tie bars and the forge ones if any? Might as well do the lot in one go.

    Cheers Mate...Had a longer talk with you via email (I'm the Norwegian guy with all the questions on VAT etc)...Thank you for being so helpful!

    I see that all the 3 other spring brands (eibach, weitec and....? can't remember now) lower the S3 (theoretically) 5mm more up front. Why is that? Is it because those manufacturers all saw what H&R didn't;

    That an S3 with H&R seems to be a little lower at the rear. Like it sagging?!

    Very little now to be honest.

    No problem Dennis, nice speaking to you.

    A lot of people like the S3's slightly lower at the front because of that reason where when the same lowering is used front and rear they always look lower at the back.

    Is this still likely to happen? I have had a change of heart and looking to go B8's rather than coil overs now :)

    Sorry bud, it's a shame that this didn't take off but we just couldn't get the last person. As well as that, a few people from the list have bought the dampers now anyway.

    DPM, sorry for the thread-jack but I'm after a bit of advice.

    I've got a 2000 1.8T Sport and I'm looking at sorting the handling out.

    Cant afford coilovers so I'm looking at either a Koni, H&R or Weitec spring and shocks kit. I'm not wanting to go too low so looking at about 35mm drop. Car will also be getting stiffer ARB's front and rear and polybushed at the same time.

    Any advice on what kits would be suitable?.

    Cheers

    Tom

    Cool thanks for that Damian. I've had a look at the Weitec one and it looks pretty good, seems to get some good feedback too from buyers too. Would you say its any better than the H&R 35mm cup kit as thats another one I've seen as well as the KW 40mm kit.

    Another question if I may, I'm running the stock Sport 16" rims at the moment and I'm looking to go up to 17's. Am I likely to have any trouble there?, looking at the new RS4 style wheels (reps in a 17").

    Thanks again

    Tom

    The Weitec kit is very similar to the KW as it's made by them but i'd say the H&R is a better kit but it is a lot more money.

    No you won't have any problems when you go up to 17's.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Damian,

    Thats brilliant, thanks very much. Have you got the Weitec one in stock? (40mm), just got to move some funds about but you could very well have an order on your hands. I'll be after a set of ARBs too whilst I'm at it.

    Many thanks again

    Tom

    We'd need to order it in but we'd get it sent direct from Weitec to you to make things a bit quicker.

    Thanks,
