    So many euro examples of A3's on here - check out the owners thread and Rimz thread stickied at the top of the A3 forum.

    What A3 do you have?

    Would you want to air/hydro the suspension?

    I have a tdi 170. Not sure how low I want to go. Living in the sticks sucks. It's my daily drive. So was thinking maybe coilovers to start.
    Will take a look at some pics and threadz. Thanks.

    If you're out in the sticks and roads/bumps are a problem, being on air would be much more convenient than coilovers. Looks class, not cheap though.

    Just ordered new rims. And a friend sourced some coilovers. Can't wait to see the change in look.
    These are the rims I ended up going for. What do ppl think?

    Well everyone, I bit the bullet, lowered with new wheels. Opinions welcomed. Will get better pictures up after a good clean.
