    I've been a long time lurker on the forum and I've picked up some great bits of info, now I have a question I'm hoping you can help with.

    I'm looking at my options for fitting coilovers and I wondered what peoples opinions are on the two I've found and whether there are any other options I've missed. My car is a 2002 A3 TDI Quattro which I believe has the same suspension as the S3.

    I've ordered a set of adjustable tie bars, is there anything else I need or should do at the same time? drop links? top mounts?

    I'm looking for some with decent quality coilovers but at a reasonable price and I'd like to have the option of adjusting the damping so my two options at the moment are:

    FK Konigsport

    FK Konigsport Coilover Suspension Kit A3 8L 1.8T Quattro, 1.9TDi Quattro 08/98> - £660.00 : The premier online mail order VAG suspension and performance specialists. We offer a wide range of all the best branded suspension and performance parts for

    or

    Vmaxx Xxtreme

    What are peoples thoughts?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the offer, I'm tending to think I'd prefer to buy new so I won't ever have to touch them again! Are they adjustable dampers?

    I've now found a couple more options at a similar price:
    AP Height & Damping Coilovers
    £664.20
    AUDI A3 (8L) Quattro / 4WD 12/96- AP HEIGHT & DAMPING COILOVERS Lowers Car by: Front: 30-50 mm Rear: 30-50mm


    AUDI A3 Quattro S3 Spax RSX Coilovers - RSX749
    £630
    AUDI A3 Quattro S3 Spax RSX Coilovers RSX749 Only �630.00

    Does anyone have any of these kits fitted? Anyone have any opinions on them?
