    Hi guys... alot of people asked for some photos and opinions of the kit...so here goes:
    Heres the kit...plus extra parts that I had delivered:

    The delivery time was very quick... i think 2 days.

    Here is my car on standard shocks and springs:
    [​IMG]
    As you can see it looks like its on stilts!

    And here is the car lowered 30mm on the weitec kit:
    [​IMG]

    Now im very happy with the kit so far... the drop gives an OEM look compared to maybe the euro look of a larger drop which inturn would of involved replacing other parts and I may of possibly had rubbing issues with the ARB and driveshafts.
    The ride quality is brilliant... I will state that I had new rubber top mounts, bearings and ARB bushes fitted at the sametime which was definately worth it. Barely cost anything and I had a knocking sound when going over bumps etc which was down too the bearing being cracked and the one ARB bush was shot aswell. Also just too finish things off I had all of the tracking done just incase.
    So now the car handles like a brand new car. Ive driven the car 2-3 days now and the it holds very well in the corners with no roll at all. The roads around my area are terrible aswell... you can feel the pot holes etc but the kit does a very good job a soaking them up.
    In conclusion if you want a good balance of great handling, comfort, low budget and OEM look then you definately cant go wrong with this kit!

    Costs:
    Weitec 30mm springs and shocks: £269.00 thanks too dpm
    Rubber Top Mounts: £8 each plus vat
    Strut Bearings: £4.98 each plus vat
    ABR bushes: £3.87 each plus vat
    Tracking: £21.30
    Fitting cost: £130 (*cash - cough cough* ) note this included fitting the new cat in the photo above which was time consuming as the bolts holding the front pipe onto the manifold didnt wana budge.

    All in all im a happy audi owner:)

    I'm a big fan of the Weitec kits. I had them on my Mk4 Golf and did 90000 miles on them without any problems.

    Very compliant ride (which was important to me).

    However,the thing that impresses me the most is how consistent you are with your parking. It hasn't moved an inch between photos. :)

    See i dont bother with all this modern bullsh!t of parking sensors... u know when your in the right place when you hit the kerb lol

    As for the comment about not much difference... there is a clear difference.. and as I stated I wanted a more OEM look rather than scrapping the tarmac euro look.:p

    Car looks great now! Did you happen to measure if drop was accurately 30mm?

    I think I'll install same Weitec kit to my 1.8 before summer. I like my A3 except feedback of steering is usually (<120km/h) rather dead. Probably I should first replace bushings, but now yet sure with what. Polyurethane (Powerflex), original rubber, or investigate if S3 would have better OEM parts that fit. I've read so different comments about PU.

    This Weitec -30mm kit is very nicely priced also in Finland. Nice to see you are happy with it!
