    1st up big thankyou to Damian DPM (www.dpmautostyling.co.uk) for your help and patience also big thanks to the guys at K1 Wheels (02085480095) for your hard work and excellent prices (the kings of wheels and suspension in east london!):salute:

    1st up spacers, went for the H&R hubcentrics 8mm front and 10mm rear, to be honest on the A3 8mm may be about 2mm to wide for the front with 8j offset 35 wheels as they sit proud of the arches by a couple ot mm . The 10mm spacers on the rear are perfect though and theres probable space to go a few mm wider.. also my old locking bolts fit the 8 mm spacers but I required longer ones for the 10 mm ones
    heres the front:

    For the springs I went for the 50mm springs, they are obviously firmer but not ridiculously so, (the GF hasnt even noticed!). The car is low, but not slammed so still looks OEM. The front and back are completely level.

    Will be upgrading the shocks next month either billy's or eibach the car still rides ok with the standard shocks though

    I've just sold a set. they are ASA AR1's. sister company of BBS but built in korea. 1pc rims. I paid £560 delivered from Dubmeister in Bristol. They really suited my MK4 golf, but wasn't keen on the S3 so I sold them last night for £400.
