    Which coilovers for the S3? Here in South Africa, we are limited to few suppliers of coilover kits such as H&R, Koni and Eibach. I am unaware of any KW distributors in SA.

    Im looking to lower the ride height of the car, and add to the handling capabilities at the same time.

    I was quoted R10 000 ZAR for Koni and R15 000 ZAR for the H&R (ZA Rand/£ = 12.76). Is the H&R kit so much better?

    Or I can just splash for the H&R 25mm springs
