    Hi I have posted in another sub forum and was directed to you!

    I have a 57 plate a3 1/6 SE I have just bought some S/hand 18' rs4 wheels.

    I want it to sit a bit lower - but not too low.

    I have read that it will be higher than an s line spec already so I am confused as to what size lowering springs to order? I dont want it too low - but slightly lower than an s line? just enough so they sit flush with the arches and then possibly buy some spacers to push them out a bit?

    And could you tell me which ones to go for? I see you have a lot of different brands on the site - I dont want an overly harsh ride if at all possible.

    Thanks,

    Luke

    I am after the same effect with my a4 b6 1.8t (190) sline, I want it sitting just nice around the arch/tyre! With a bit of spacing, DPM would you still recommend the above solution for me?
