    Is the S-line sport suspension lowered 25mm from standard ? In australia the S-line sport only lowered by 15mm compare to standard.

    How is S-Line sport suspension? Is it too harsh when driving around?

    Does switching it to Comfort make any difference?

    The standard S-Line suspension is 15mm lower than the SE, S-Line Sport is 25mm lower than SE.

    I'll let you know in due course, I'm afraid I've not had the chance to drive it 'properly' yet; I've done around 100 miles all in dynamic mode and it felt fine to me .... bring on the weekend and I'll report back :)

    Changed the kicks. VMR V701 in galaxy black.

    Need to change centre caps. And put Eibachs on. Needs to sit lower to set these wheels off.

    Better pics to come.

    Looking good buddy!! Defo needs lowered tho when you getting the Eibach's on?

    Now for the usual questions .......

    Wheel size and width?
    Offset?
    Tyre size?

    Can you post a pic looking more from along the side please? Just to see where the wheel sits.

    Cheers

    I've got a bunch of parts on the way so I'm going to install them all together. Milltek DP, Forge FMIC, springs....

    Wheels are 19x8.5et45. Poke out about 2mm.

    Tyres are 235/35s.

    You mean a shot from the rear along the side?

    One more...need to black out my rear diffuser and front grill.

    Yes one from the rear and one from the front along the side please?

    Those wheels look good against the white, and the whole look will be better once lowered and get all your silver and grey parts blackened.
    Are you getting the whole diffuser gloss black or just the silver strip? I think the whole thing gloss black will look really good!!

    Thanks man. Of course I scuffed a rim already haha. And now the headache of getting a custom painted wheel fixed. They'll never match the paint!

    I was planning on glossing the front grille and doing the rear diffuser in matte. I think it would look a bit odd in gloss.

    Was also planning on leaving the trim pieces in silver. Reason being the window surrounds are hard to do in black. They don't really come off easily. So doing it all in black but leaving the windows in silver would look very odd haha.

    Here's a side profile and a couple more.

    Yeah might try and get them on this week.

    I'm debating machining the wheel lip. Would fix the gutter rash haha. What you think?

    Hi, new to forum which is great BTW. Took delivery of new A3 SB 1.4 TFSI S-tronic last month. Includes metallic, style package and interior lighting pack. Replaced 2002 A3 hatchback custom built to my specs. New car is excellent to drive and in looks, luv the minimalist dash/interior. Will post some pics soon.

    Hi, saw your pic of new Audi keys and the Lanson boxed bottle cognac ? Funny, but I received the same gift when I took delivery of my new wheels also. Is it nice - ie the cognac. Assume you are in UK ?
