    When i got my new rims on i can clearly notice that the front is higher or atleast the gap between the wheel and the body is bigger... Anybody know what the deal is?

    Will the eibach sportline springs sort this out?

    I assume the gap is bigger to allow the suspension to be compressed to the maximum at the same time you are full lock. As the rear wheels don't turn, so the gap doesn't need to be as big. I assume thats the reason anyway ;)

    as above also i dont think the eibachs will lower it that much as the s line is lower than the standard a3 that the springs are produced for

    No im not talking about how much the eibachs will lower it, i am just wondering if i will see any difference between rear and front after i lower it... will it still look higher in the front.

    If so then KW coilovers might be the only way to go.

    But MarriedBlonde's car did look very even with his eibachs
