    The suspension is different, both stiffer and lower but I'm afraid I dont know how much lower the sport is.

    Ithink the ride height between the standard and sport setup is fairly small. The only thing I have really noticed is the suspension being noticeably harder on the sport model.

    It feels a bit more "poised" than the standard version and gives you more feedback when driving - oh - and whiplash when you go over a speedbump too fast

    The A3 with sports suspension was lowered by 20mm over standard suspension, this is taken from the official UK A3 brochure for the A3 facelift version dated June 2000.

  7. I think the B6 A4 sport is 35mm lower, and that this increased from 20mm in early 2004.. but may be wrong!
