    Lowered the A3 yesterday 50mm on Eibach springs!! Well chuffed with the ride hight and drive. Supprised they weren't that hard to fit.
    Just nice not to hard. Ill get some pics up soon once i figure out how to lol.

    I think the Sportlines are only 50mm on the front, the rears are only 40-45mm, gives a slight nose down stance which I like!

    very nice. Are these just the springs on standard shocks? would that improve the handling or are you going for just the looks?

    NO WAY! haha mad one! I had to go out that night so lucky i got my mate to bid or you would of got them for £56

    If im right reason for the 35 - 40 and front 50 to get the right balance, as if you notice now your audi is lower in the front than the back at a slant

    Hey, I have excatly same model as your car mate (red) Had any problems so far? with shocks, camber, rubbing (with lots of weight) How much harder is the ride than s-line sport set up. These seem like a nice cheap upgrade. Im also thinking about s3 upgrade, bumper wont rub will it ? :( Thanks!
