    Not sure on the springs as havn't changed mine, but i'd go 18" new RS4 or new RS6 reps. I like both but decided myself i prefer the RS4's so got mine yesterday and really chuffed.
    If i was you i'd get wheels and a remap instead of springs. Unless your really going to use the springs to their best use (track days) i think a remap would be money better spent.

    remap will be a good idea depending upon car, if you have a non turbo than a remap will be a bigger waste of money, also your insurance will rocket when they know you have remapped it.

    i have the rs6 reps and i cant be happier, i think they suit the car much more than any other alloy, or even the new rs6 alloys, also, someone on here had fitted the a5 5 spoke alloys, the pic is on the a3 pics bit.

    for springs, it really depends on what ur after, if you want to keep a good ride, gor for eibachs 30mm or the H&R 35mm or the eibachs 40/50mm or H&R 50 mm

    They wont;)

    I doubt if you crashed the software on the ECU would ever get 'scanned' to see if it was different to OEM.

    true, but i would hate it if they ever just randomly checked it. i suppose you could play dumb and pretend the previous owner had done it, and hope that they will feel sorry for you.......... what am i saying, insurance companies feeling sorry for us. silly me! lol
