    Got bilstein coilovers on the car (01, S3) and want to raise the ride height cos its too low! Had a quick look and was shocked by how short the springs are! Not sure how much I can raise them.

    i have seen pics like this before, there's no gap in the coils so there cant be and movment when you go over a bump! mine are not bilstein but is very low and theres a clear gap in between each spring.
