    what lowering springs are you guys running . even swapping from 18" to 19" theres still at least a 30mm gap between the rims and arches . been looking at springs but most only offer a 30mm drop . im guessing that it needs 40mm at least to look better as these are estimated heights for non sline models which i believe are 20-30mm lower .

    so what springs are rated well on here. dont want teeth smashing suspension either ,knocking on a bit now .

    H&R are very good quality and very popular amongst VAG owners.

    Part No.: 981440281 lowers it by 40mm.

    I've got Eibach sportlines on mine and they performs very well. The ride is only slightly stiffer than standard and they e dropped my s line around 20mm or so.

    i have eibach sportsline on my se ,body roll is vastly improved suspension is slightly stiffer than se set up not sure on s line , when i fitted the eibach sportsline to my b7 s line it made the ride less harsh but better cornering ,not sure on the b8 as told s line ride is not as harsh as the b7 .

    Yes I'd say it has but I've not really been for a good blast. Make sure you get some pics up once they're fitted!

    Well theyre on!! Apparantly the fronts were a right cnut to do but the end result is well worth it.Smooth ride, and very tight round bends.No roll.Really pleased.Only prob was with the front bump stops as they didnt fit properly...the shock was thinner than the stop but they are on.Surprised at how low it is, but it doesnt rub or suffer from speed humps.Happy boy.Just need to clean it (pressure washer bust) and ill stick some pics on.

    Get some pics up or have i not spotted them? I just used the original bump stops on mine because the new one's didn't fit. Never had any probelms with it bottoming out on the bump stops though so all good.

    fitted eibach on mine, something not right , terrible ride car is bouncing all over place . it only feels right when the car is fully loaded
    buying new shocks may correct it but there again it may not .
