    Hey guys..its me again.. in the process of sorting out my project for my A3 and am now looking at placing some Bentleys onto my whip gunna go down the real show car rather than go car...... The question is does anyone know how low you can go as upgrading my suspension as the same time and dont want to have any kind of rubbing ( looking to spend around 400 pound max on the drop as puting in allot for the wheels .... input and pictures of anyone that has done this would be good.. as my car is pearl silver blue I am looking to get the bentley spokes refinished in pearl white and the rim in polished chrome.. thanks guys.. Also what is the best dropped set up to have on a pair of 19's?

    Do you mean what are the best coilovers for your car?

    I would say KW V3's but there is a various choice

    Why not go the whole hog and get airbag suspension or hydraulics?

    Guys,

    Luke Massy at Plush Automotive did all my air ride. You want to give him a call. I've got a 5 gallon tank with 2 Vivair 480 compressors with easystreet digital management, so when I started the car it goes to a preset ride height, which you can adjust at any time as its 4 way adjustable.

    It looks stupid to you, it doesn't appeal to me... Good thing it's not our cars they're fitting it to, but theirs. :icon_thumright:

    Haters gonna hate! Peeps just can't understand their purpose. Comfortable and perfect ride height while driving. Lift it up when going in and out of driveways and speed bumps so ya don't scrap the expensive bumper and slam it when park so it can sleep. You don't get it till ya get it! Lookin' good Nate

    The UK is fortuNate to have Nate! We across the pond are proud of our homie Jason. For all those that complain about rubbing, cringe when fat chicks get in back, say expletives when scraping everytime you leave a driveway...
