    HI folks,

    My car is a 2.0T s.line sportback/ running 18''s
    I have searched around but cannot find the result I am looking for
    so, I have pretty much set my sight on the H&R make
    Everyday I have to go through the junction which is down hill layout and join back up the hill so inbetween i will have a chance of catching the bottom of the car, on my old standard a3 with 50mm drop It has always catch the bottom.
    So what should I do :think:
    Pics I think will sort me out

    Thank you

    No it's not a massive difference, all down to personal choice and how you want it though.

    I've got Eibach 50mm drop front and 40mm drop rear. I've found them to be great and I haven't had any scraping on the road or arches, and think they look great! I'll try and post some pics later, but haven't done it before, so bare with me. To get an idea of how much lower it will be, the front measurement from the wheel centre to the arch was 345mm after lowering.

    have you thought about coilovers? You'd have an adjustable drop then. you could lower it a few mm every day untill it starts scraping, and then go back a bit.
