    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.

    Anyone gone lower than 50mm??

    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!

    They look smart. I have been looking and was only going to lower mine 30mm on eibach springs too but the pro kit. All on standards shocks ect. But now I'm looking at 50mm then as it looks neat and not too much.

    because you only changed the springs, has it affected your top mounts at all or is it likely it won't matter?

    It doesn't matter. I always advise people to change top mount and bearing when doing the springs as its labour free and makes sense.
