    Having a look through a French forum for some pics and found a thread full of cracking pics of a Misano S3 SB lowered on 19's.
    I tried to google translate but can't possibly translate the whole thread.
    So, as the title says I'm wondering if any of you out there who can read French can take a look at this thread for me please?

    S3 sportback misano - S3 8V / S3 berline / S3 Sportback / S3 Cabriolet - Forums Audi-Passion / La Communauté des Quatre Anneaux

    If you could have a read through and find out the following for me please that would be great........

    1. Wheel size inc width, and ET
    2. Tyre size
    3. What suspension eg: is it lowering springs or coilovers

    I think this S3 is sitting just the way I want mine to sit so any help would be appreciated!!

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    No that I can speak French mate. But I believe the same as mine.

    1. 19 x 8.5 ET47
    2. 225/35/19
    3. Coilovers I think? Springs would offer a more than satisfactory drop though H&R or Eichbach

    Search LDPrestige on Facebook and check out their page that car is on their and your right arguably the best looking sportback in Europe!

    USE Google translate, it's FREE and does German, Grench, Italian, etc. However, using this program the translation is:

    "Hello everyone, it's been a while since I am involved in the forum here and there, and the time has come to introduce myself and introduce my acquisition.
    I'm Nico (bobby) 33 years of Hyères in the Var, car enthusiast and sports in particular. It is now six months I sold my scirocco R slightly prepared and the time has come for a car of the same ilk, having rejected the RS3!
    I will next week take over an S3 Sportback S-tro misano with the usual options Bang Olufsen Advanced MMI, upholstery corso, etc ...)
    To this will be added wheels RS6 c7 (to start), KW and window tinting"

    I have tried google translate as I said in the OP, and as you can see it sometimes makes no sense, hence why I asked for help from someone who can actually read French but thanks for your input.

    Anyone read French out there???
