    Hello everyone, my first post so bare with me if the answer to this question is common knowledge as I'm still a bit new to the whole Audi scene :think: I've just bought myself an 03 plate A3 2.0 TDi Sport and will in the not so distant future be keen on dropping the ride height a bit. Not wanting to spend a fortune so Coilovers are out of the question, but what kind of drop (if any??) could I expect to see from fitting the later S-Line springs to my Sport?
    Any info/pictures/recommendations etc will be gratefully received :thumbsup:

    You'd be better off fitting Eibach springs. These drop about 5mm more than S-Line but have better ride quality.

    It will shorten the life to an extent. It depends on how low you go and how you drive it. Usually a 30ish mm drop will be ok on factory dampers.
