    Hi all, just purchased my A3 S Line 170 TDI. A welcome change from my Impreza Sti due to constant problems and of course the fuel bills. The car is standard apart from a pioneer satnav/blue ray player. The car is currently having all four wheels refurbed, completely split down, powder coated, painted and lacquered (OCD). Next week it is booked in for a set of H&R 50mm springs and wheel alignment, unable to fit myself as other toys take up all my time at the minute. Seems I have read every post about lowering springs and everyone has different opinions, I just want the car to sit slightly lower and not rub, hope I have made the right choice- any further advice welcomed before it's too late. Anyhow this is how the car currently looks, more pics to follow as the work is completed.

    Cheers Sam

    looks nice, advise? apart from if you like your cars low, not just lowered, the springs won't be low enough..

    i think the 50mm will be enough, want to avoid any rubbing just want the back end sat down a little more.

    Had the wheels refurbed at the weekend and just fitted the H&R 50mm lowering springs. Excuse the dirt, Somerset is pretty damp at the minute.
