    Does anyone know if S3 springs would work on a A3 Sportback S-Line quattro TDI?

    I'd guess there would be an issue around the difference in weight. The TDI engine will be heavier than the petrol so it would mean the front would be a bit saggy with the S3 springs.

    I see. What's the weight difference between an S3 and a quattro 170TDI - anyone know?

    The 170TDI Quattro Sportback is only 25kgs heavier!!!! You'd think it would be more than that

    Looking on the eibach website the front and rear are:

    For the TDI : 1130 kg 1005 kg

    For the S3 this is: 1150 kg nothing is listed for the rear

    Thank you...

    Just a thought that some S3 springs might do the trick to subtly lower my TDI quattro as springs for the quattro in particular are few and far between and don't lower it much over the S-Line setup...
