    Hi guys,

    can someone tell me if there are some other lower springs which
    i can replace them with standard KW V3 ones? Anybody done it?

    The rear on Kw V3 just cant go low enough,i need 20mm or more!

    Si,If i'm getting this right:
    A3 standard -15mm
    S Line -25mm
    S3 same as S-line 25mm
    H&R springs -25mm,thats another 25mm from standrad S3 which makes total 50mm!?
    KW V3 -40mm,so thats just -15mm from standard 25mm!?

    Help me out here guys,need to drop my S3 but dont want to sell KW's.

    Andreas Pfeffer aka gepffefert.com will always be my port of call for kw bits, although he is in Germany, his customer service NEVER fails, top guy, his cars all look tremendous although too low for my everyday driving :(
    I will always sing his praises, as he has helped me out, LOADS:friends:

    Yes i spoked with N8 and he also recommend doing this!
    If i dont get them springs,trimming that caps will be first thing to do.

    Thanks again mate!

    I still dont know if anyboy done it before!?
    S3Alex had them (not on his car) but then he fitted clubsports.
