    They'd fit, they'll be stiffer, but higher at the front.

    My set-up is Eibach springs for the RS4, and Bilstein Sport dampers for the RS4 too. My front end's higher, but I expected that.

    I also know once my S8 motor, and 6-speed box go in, the front'll settle just fine.

    Pretty close then, will keep a look out for your car.

    The RS4 IS a fair bit heavier than the S4, overall.
