    Hi mate, not on an S3 but I used to have a KW Spring and Damper kit on my Mk3 Polo, was a brilliant kit, a little hard but fantastic kit to throw around the twisties :D

    Aslo if it helps we can get them here too :)

    i have this kit, after my original springs fell apart. what mike said is spot on, it is a little hard and you won't like speed humps. but when it comes to corners and roundabouts you can feel your way in better and have more confidence to push the go pedal earlier.

    that said if you value comfort then oe is the best. but they are bloody expensive. and will fall apart at some point.

    I'd be interested in hearing more from people about these kits as the seem very good value compared to the B8/H&R/Eibach combos!

    Looking to preferably keep the car standard. But when shocks and springs add up to over £600, it gets you thinking!
