    With LM's in my opinion you would need the decked look

    I have 19" BBS CH on my S3 and only lowered 25mm on H&R springs which is nearly as low as my A3 TDI was on the same rims!

    Check out the rims thread at the top of the page!

    Can't get the link here on my phone :( you think 40 mm springs would do the trick.? I'm just really not sure think I'd like to get haillos. But not sure if 40 mm's would pull it off. What you think??

    Any pics of your old one? Did you have coilies on it? I just want to see how low it would be with 40 mm springs.

    I wouldnt put 40mm springs with standard shocks- the dampers will be too compressed and the ride bouncy as hell, and they will wear out quickly.

    Think I'd have to go for shortened shocks too?
