    The warning lights are probably due to the high voltage ballasts interfering with the crash/abs sensors.

    Are the 1.9 springs from a quattro too? If they are then they'll 'fit' but the weight loading will be wrong as the V6 is obviously a heavier engine, so the ride height will be incorrect and I expect it will handle badly.

    quattro and fwd springs aren't compatible I'm afraid.

    You could try moving the ballasts to the bulkhead, basically as far away from the lights as possible. It's not a guaranted fix, but worth a try.

    Moving ballasts further back solved the problem for me. Now 6 months and no warnings :)
