    My car will be arriving soon - 1.4TFSI on S-line suspension - i will stay on 18" alloys and i was just wondering how low i could go to have the tire sitting just in the arch, will i have any rubbing issues ? and also which springs would be best to go for ?

    Thanks

    Its on air ride will - i - am, so I can drive it whatever height I want. Just a drop on springs 35mm you'll be fine, if you want the perfect look regarding height, coilovers will be your best option

    Eibach Pro 25-30mm that would do a nice job because you are on an s.line suspension
