    Hi,

    Sorry if this has been asked 1000 times before but my searching skills sucks ( ive tried wild cards but with no avail also)

    But does anyone know if the S3 8P Shocks/Suspension+Springs will fit onto an A3 8P?

    I know the S3 is 4WD but i been told they "may" fit.

    Has anyone done this before?

    Thanks & All advice appreciated.

    I'd go with aftermarket stuff, i.e. weitec coilovers, will be a much better ride than S3 OEM setup.

    I was offered $400AUD (or roughly £200) for S3 8P shocks and has only travelled 50-100km - the owner bought aftermarket shocks the moment he bought his S3.

    Was originally going to just buy springs, but this came up.

    I think its a pretty sweet deal (right?) installation can be done myself.
