    Im thinking of getting some 18's on my A3 2.0 TDI SPORTBACK (SPORT MODEL).

    If after wheels are fitted im going to see if it will need lowering,if it does,then which ones should i go for and what drop?

    APEX,EIBACH,KONI,P.I, JAMEX,GMAX ?

    As my car is the sport model how much lower is it than the se model and also is the s-line lower than the sport,if so by how much?

    I was told a 30mm drop wont drop my car that much as its a sport,what is the best drop i can go without affecting camber 30,35 or 40mm

    a 30mm drop will not hurt. I used EIBACH Springs. It given me good handling for mostly on hard turns.

    I'd say go for Eibach, depending on how low you want it the Sportline's may be a better choice.

    The Sport model is already around 10-15mm lower then the SE so from a 30mm kit you'll only see around 15-20mm. With the Sportline's you'll see 35-40mm at the front and 20-25mm at the rear.
