    I agree with fingermouse, coilovers for the road are a little bit of an overkill

    Just out of curiosity, whats the difference between the Bilstein & Eibach combo compared to an Eibach springs and shocks kit? (apart from price obviously).
    I'm guessing the full Eibach set up is much cheaper and still a good brand, so would one really notice the diffence on road use only?

    Eibach don't do dampers for the S3 8L.

    Eibach do coilovers, but as Damian says, no normal shocks. Eibach tend to be on the harder side.
