    No idea how much lower it is, it's much lower than it was when i had it. The joys of coilovers i guess

    Definately 30mm. Thats what coilovers come as standard out the box. Then if you want to adjust them you can go as low as you like up to 60-70mm i think?.....

    My cars only on a drop kerb so no major lean/tilt or nothing to make it look lower. It looks as it is when it's on a perfectly flat piece of road.....Here's a couple more pics from the other side before i got my tints etc......:happy:

    Love it, awesome clean car sits perfect not to low, can I ask if the wheels are reps and if so where you got them and how are they holding up? Cheers

    OEM RS6'S in our ET are not easy to come by.. I wasted 6 months looking for mine, almost spent £1000 on a new set of 4 from germany then I found a set of 5 with Pzeros all round for £450!! bargain!
    they have been kerbed a bit much since I owned them!

    How come you spent so long looking for OEM instead of decent reps?

    The dark on yellow looks spot on BTW

    Nice one mate, yes the wheels are reps, i got them off ebay about 3 years ago and they are holding up well....I've got a slight scuff on 1 and a couple stone chips on the others, so not too bad at all for how long i've been rolling on them.:icon_thumright:

    Well that's solved my choice of rim as well now then. I wasn't sure whether to take the chance on the RS6's. Now I know I want them.:hubbahubba:

    Sorted a price on a set of 18's with Conti 225/40/18's for £675

    My car's a 2,6L Quattro Sport.

    It was lower than regular / SE models before I replaced the suspension.
    OEM Sport package lowers the car 20mm over regular / SE models.
