    Yep I have this on both my A4's and over soft dips the car will bonus but on the track and cornering it’s a vast improvement.

    The 1.8TQ with sport shocks is a lot better than the 2.8 in this area, must be the sport shocks still being able to work.

    least iam not the only one then lol, just a bit bouncy for my liking so iam seeing what kits are available to me at the mo

    cant do coilovers just yet, as iam shelling out for a cambelt change and wheels and few other bits at present so can only stretch to a few hundred notes for a kit etc

    any recomendations ?

    The main ones that spring to mind are koni top adjusters.

    I used to have 35/45mm lowering springs on standard shocks and i found it bouncy aswell. Gone to coilovers and the rides a lot smoother. Fk Highsports great value for money.
