    Had my a3 1.8t nearly 10 yrs now and the suspension could do with an overhaul, the steering and handling feel slack and fagiue. Im not bothered about lowering I just want a nicer steer. What do people recommend I can buy parts and get my garage to fit?

    Thanks

    If you don't want to lower it then just a general refresh with standard parts would improve things but if you're wanting to improve handling then without lowering I'd suggest Bilstein B6 dampers and a set of uprated ARB.

    +1 for the B12 kit - I put this on my 2001 S3 last year and absolutely love it.
