    I have a 8P 3dr 2.0 sport tdi in grey...
    Im thinking of puttung a set of 18's on but keeping the standard suspension.

    Does anyone have a pic of the ride height?

    Cheers

    The ride height seems fine to me - how are you coping with it or do you feel it does need a drop?

    Lingy you bugger! ha ha

    I've just changed from Sport to Eibach Sportline springs and I'm running 18" alloys.
    Photos of Sports on 18" wheels will look worse than they really do in the flesh, somehow photos make them look higher than they really are.
    But saying that, 18s look much better when the car is lowered.

    Have a look at my thread in my sig and there are loads of photos of my Sport on 17s, 18s, and then on 18s with my car lowered by 30-35mm below Sport height.

    F****er! :moa:

    It drives great, I do feel to lower it for looks but don't want to compromise the ride.
    Keep reading peoples build threads who have lowered theirs on springs,
    alot of people get good results.

    S line springs seem a good option :salute:

    I'd be interested in seeing some new RS6 rims on a standard sport. Thinking of getting some, but cant really justify spending extra on 19's and then having to get coilovers.

    19 on coils is bad ride quality (as i have read here/and heard)

    I think 18s and certain coils or springs is better
