    Is it a sport or se model?

    If it's the sport, it probably wouldn't need lowering too much vs the SE?

    :lol: at the oxygen comment!

    I have a sport already, and personally wouldn't want it much lower, maybe 10-15mm or so.

    On my old A3, I fitted some Eibach Sportline springs to it, which took it just a smidge lower than a sport model. I think it looked good, and wasn't so low I scraped speed bumps and ridges in the Fenland roads round here!

    Good quality springs though, and worked fine with the stock dampers, though I later fitted some Koni FSD's which were fab! :)
