    So this happened....

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1394107009.030061.jpg

    Now, i have searched a fair bit and have been unable to find anything definitive. My problem is that there are a load of a3 spares available but no one seems to know what they actually have. By this I mean that my car has the s line suspension with the 25mm drop from factory and im trying to source a pair of used rear coils, but most people are unsure about what the cars they have came with.

    So my question is this, much like how there are a bunch of codes to tell u brake sizes on a particular car, is there one to tell u what suspension a car has? If so what code should i be looking for

    Further to this, im led to believe that the s line models after 06 (8p2's) all had the s line suspension? Can anyone confirm this and if anyone has more info that could help me find the right parts id appreciate it

    Also if anyone has a set of rear coils or maybe some aftermarket springs at a good price let me know.

    Car is a '56 pd170 sportback

    Bump

    So i've decoded all of the codes on my options list to find

    0YF = Weight range 6 installation control only, no requirement forecast
    L84 = Suspension range 84 installation control only, no requirement forecast
    UA3 = Rear shock absorption

    I've been trawling through a russian version of etka to find the right parts. I've also checked the colour code on my suspension which looks to be 3 dots lilac (maybe violet) 1 dot yellow.

    Now i've come across this on another site:

    "(A3) Audi A3 Sportback
    grey.
    orange.
    PR-UA3+0YF.
    (0YF) Weight category rear axle: Weight range 6 installation control only, no requirement forecast.
    (1X0) Drive layout: Front wheel drive.
    (UA3) Shock absorption, chassis, rear: Rear shock absorption."

    Coil spring 3 paint marks 1 paint mark. Suspension shock absorber rear ;. Audi A3 (2009 - 2012) # 8P0511115BJ


    That says i should have 3 grey 1 orange, but what i have is different, although it is listed for an 8p3. So now im confused, any ideas anyone?
