    they should bolt on yes but there is a very big but here they might not be the right spring rate for the heavier v6 engine as the s3 is a 4 cylinder i would phone some suspension specalists first before you do anything just advice follow it or not its just advice

    I agree the rear should be ok i think but the front will be a no go due to the weight difference

    Think the front weight difference will be too much, the 3.2 front axle load could be about 80-100 kgs more I think.
