    Whats different on the suspension? I have an A3 sport but want it to sit more like the S3, does the S3 have totally different suspension or just lower springs? And would S3 suspension go onto my Sport?

    Cheers guys.

    i think it has totally new suspension, look at the H&R springs that lower it 35mm from standard, so you will have it sitting at the same height as the s3

    well people who have has the s-line suspension set-up say that the eibach and the H&R springs give it a much more forgiving ride, so i dont think it will be back breakingly harsh, possibly little bit more, i have the H&R spring sitting in a box here waiting to be fitted, just havnt had time to get them on yet!

    Ok so just springs looks like it could be the way to go. You gonna get the 4way wheel alignment done and the load sensor altered? Last car I had lowered it knocked the camber out sumat shockin and went through tyres like no ones business, also I nearly killed mi sen on a motorway bridge when I tapped my breakes cos the load sensor had got stuck and my breaks slammed on! That s**t was scary!
