    nice, suspension really sorted it out.

    did you get the shocks too? or just the springs?

    Love it when the rain sits like this, you know you've done a propa job cleaning! you car sits so nice on them springs, and wheels, excellent job pal, if i had to be picky id say you could do with winding your front bumper up a touch just to squeeze that tiny gap between you're bumper and bonnet, but thats me being picky :whistle2:still a fantastic car thought, hats off to ya!

    yea mate easier than youd expect, aboutt 99% of the audis on here have that gap, just means someones had it off id say and not adjusted it back properly, if you lift your bonnet, you'll see a hole in the top of your bumper near your lights as you look down, you need a rachet and a extension with a 30torx screw (i think 30 lol) you just adjust it by turning and it should go up and down which ever way you turn it i'll take a picture and show you in a bit when i get a minute

    To be honest the ride is better than the s line springs it feels less harsh but still has a sporty feel and good feedback when cornering

    Sorry forgot to add rated 45-50 drop front up to 40mm rear I would say 20mm front and around 15mm rear so on standard a4 around 45mm front and 40mm rear but sits spot on

    Mate your car is now a minter, good job on the bumper gap and the spacers make the wheels look even better, and I thought they looked good before :)
