Thats what its all about bromo
love this thread what a great idea !
Boydie, that car has perfect 'st4nc3' IMO.
Your 25mm H&Rs look lower than my 45/50mms. Still havent had a proper look around it, kept an eye out for the car at fastcar but didnt see you. Did you ever go ahead with re-trimming those interior bits?
Thanks mate - I turned up to Fast Car rather late and I was actually meant to meet Baron there with samples for the interior bits! I will meet up with him at the weekend or later next week to see what he can do for me!
Please include the following:
1) Picture of your car
2) Brand of Coilover/suspension/Air Ride (KW V1)
3) wheel and offset (19'' Maybach ET 67)
4) tire and size (225\35 R19)
5) spacer brand/thickness (FK 20mm hubcentric)
6) other info (fender rolling, replacement tie rod ends, etc)
Could I see some more pictures of your wheels sturs4. Main point is the 225 35 not 215 35 like most people go for and I wanted 225 just want to see what they look like. Cheers
But his wheels are 8J and yours are 9J.
First time I've seen Maybach Wheels on any car other then a Maybach ...Looks pretty Nice.... Now you can Play some Ricky Ross Maybach Music .....lol and you can say it Matches my Wheels ....lol
Mine are 8j so you will need something like 235 to get the non stretch look.
Thanks N8, Love my speedline splits but cant get used to not being able to drive it hard with 215's on... 225's to be fitted after winter or guna have to sell them
You can't have looks & handling. With modding you always have to compromise! Bit like life really
P'HA!! I've got the track bug back... They too shiny to destroy! Plus storage is a nightmare with them lips!!
If you go for 235 on a 9j they should look similar to this or there might be a slight stretch.am i right nath?
ill take some inspiration from here
Like many 8p owners I too am out to achieve the perfect stance. Regardless of any views on size of wheel filling arches etc. I plan to sit my sb on 17's. Currently running ap coilovers wound all the way down and to get as low as I want Im getting custom shorter springs. Performance is not a priority, but how low can I physically get my sb on coilovers without cv joints etc not working properly. Although I'm 25 this is my first 'real car'. Not the right thread im sure but any help would be appreciated.
Not really no
2) H&R 50mm springs with S-line dampers
3) A6 Quattro 18" x 8 wheels - offset 40
4) 225 40 18 Continental Sport Contact 3 tyres
5) no spacers
6) new geometry + top mounts + black centre caps/bolt covers
1) Picture of your car:
2) Brand of Coilover: v maxx
3) wheel :rs4/tt reps and offset:n/a
4) tire and size: n/a
5) spacer brand/thickness: no spacers
Hows the ride on them Coli-overs *MÃ¼llÃ«rz ?
Suprisingly good ride. Can't say a bad word from my experience with v-max collies.
Got the exact height i wanted 1st time and no bedding in time.
Best thing i can change any time in the future(going to drop the rear same height as the front)
Due to the front being low i have to drive like a pensioner most of the time on uk roads and yet still i hear the front scraping
Good ol' V-Maxx
+1 i love mine so comfortable but scrape scrape lol
2) H&R 35mm springs
3) RS6-2 Replica 8.5x19 et45 -- OEM 5spoke 7x17 et52
4) Falken 225/35/19 -- Continental 245/35/17
5) No Spacers
It does exactly what is says on the tin
Have you removed the legendary arch screw yet?
I want to go lower
2) H&R Monotube
3) Audi S8 - 8.5x19 ET 42
4) Nankang 215/35
5) 5mm Rear
Air ride, Chavtastic! FFS. Sh1te.
Some awesome paint jobs though with the shine an all. Seriously, wtf is it with wanting the car on the floor? So you can pull up, lower it, then set fire to it and the grass when you lower the exhaust on the floor? LOL.

Stupid Trashy Aâlterations Not Cleverly Executed
Its his first German car so he doesnt understand
with both of you.
I see, all older people all over the world thinks the same about lower Cars
What did you eat Granpie???

He thinks that, im right? Sorry for my bad english
This thread needs an epic pic to get it back on track before the guy ^ gets flamed too much!
Lol. My middle age has kicked in! I am enjoying the comfort too much in mine
I been there, done that, in the Subaru. Anyway I have to go its way past my bed time!
2) Fk AK streets
3) standard audi wheels, unsure of offset and size (anyone?)
Excuse the dirty car, ha
soon to be running 18x8.5 et 45 and 18x9.5 et 45
M'coupe, what benefits do the H&R springs give over the standard ones? Other than the obvious lower ride height. I think yours looks perfect at that height, not too low, and the "stance" looks right too. I'm hoping they'll be a little less crashy than standard s-line set up.
Going back a few comments as they get older its harder for them to bend down so an air ride car is no good unless you can jack it up like the old mans easy up chair. At least that way they wont put a hip out....
stick to countryfile
Approx 20-25mm lower than S-line springs but give a predictable, firm ride giving a lot more confidence at speed. I found the S-line springs to be very crashy and not a very good match for the dampers at all. I went for the H&R over Eibach as I personally wanted equal lowering front and rear and not the nose down look. Don't forget to factor in getting your geometry reset too
