    This is my a3, with my xmas present fitted i was unsure about the drop i would achieve, as i had heard that they dont drop the car alot, about 10mm = 30mm spring kit.

    I fitted the rears myself today, i will have to wait till my freind goes back to work before i can get the fronts fitted. i was quite suprised that i got a 30mm drop from 35mm springs, which i am happy with as i live on really bumpy fen roads, so i couldnt go much lower if i wanted.

    i originally wanted coilovers but i was struggling for money as the house comes first and xmas shopping.lol. so i was going to go without, but my missus brought me these springs for xmas! with the help from my brother she got the right ones.lol.

    a few pictures below before and after, i will be posting some more when i get the fronts fitted,comments welcomed good or bad!...

    as you can see there is a noticable difference, but not huge but im still happy with the difference.

    the above picture is after lowering the rear and it has taken up the huge gap i had and made it easier on the eye.:yahoo:...
