    Good Morning Everybody.


    I have the following on my car at present.

    KW / Suspension Kits / Audi S3; (8L) 1.8T - 03/99- / Euro Performance Car Parts


    Just wondering if: The ridehight of the car could be altered / I could pair the shockers with some different springs to lower it further?

    Currently it sits 25mm front / 30mm rear however, if possible will want 40- 50mm all around if possible.


    I can't seem to find any info on weather these can be "mixed & matched" like other kits.



    Thanks in advance.

    Yeh i don't see why you can't just get some different springs to lower it further.

    Pretty sure these are 15/20 not 25/30, atleast the KW kit I've got is 15/20.

    If you're spending that much already you might aswell buy something that's sold to do 40-50mm like KW Variant 1 Basic Coilover Suspension Kit S3 8L 1.8T Quattro 01/99> - £604.00 : The premier online mail order VAG suspension and performance specialists. We offer a wide range of all the best branded suspension and performance parts for all VAG veh

    Don't forget you'll need tie bars/ maybe some other bits?? to go -50mm - not really my thing....

    You won't get springs to lower the S3 that much, as above you'll need coilovers and tie bars.
