    Hi all

    Pick up my B8 Friday (happy days), moving from my extensively modded B7, already trawled the B8 section for modding ideas.... oh no here we go again lol, the B7 sits higher on the front, is it the same with the B8

    '09 2.0 Tfsi (211bhp) sline sat on 19" Speedlines (are these standard on this car) currently looking at these

    AUDI A4 (8K2, B8) 1.8 TFSI, 2.0 TFSI, 2.0 TDI Eibach Sportline Lowering Springs | eBay

    Thoughts or alternative ideas

    TIA

    Yeah a lot of people who don't want to go down the route of coilovers go for these and seem happy with them, I run coilovers though as the springs just aren't low enough for me plus im sure I will be corrected if I'm wrong but they do leave the front sat a little higher than the rear and I couldn't cope with that lol my coilovers were fitted before Christmas but will be getting removed in the next couple of months for air ride fitting...

    Silly question but how much lower do these springs take the car down by?

    I know for the S line sports suspension it's already lowered by 20mm, these springs says 'Lowers Front 45 mm & Rear 35 mm'.
    So if removing the sports suspension, and putting these in would it lower them by another 25 mm front & 15 mm rear?

    Yes. 35/45 is based on SE suspension.

    Still be the exact same drop as you are replacing the suspension so wether it be an sline or an SE it will still look the same.
