    Kind of pointless putting on Bilstein shocks with unbranded cheap springs...I`d avoid the first and last line tbh.

    Also arent the B4 shocks just basically a standard replacement? Its the B8`s that are uprated? Could be wrong as i dont know all that much about Bilstein..

    yeah the bilstein b4s area standard replacement, but i assumed they would be ok on a 35mm drop?
    and yes i was thinking the same, maybe i will avoid cheapy springs

    For the price, the second option is where i'd be spending my cash.

    B4's are "OEM" but afaik they are slightly uprated, as bilstein used to sell a "streetline" kit which had the B4 shocks and some ventura lowering springs. I had a set on my old nova back in the day and they were acceptable enough. Not bangy or crashy etc.

    If you`re on a tight budget just get some decent springs and good condition second hand standard shocks if yours are getting tired?

    You could ruin the car putting cheap parts on it imo

    Its always worth buying quality parts and knowing its done once done right

    After all you chose a Audi for a reason don`t put wishy washy parts on it.

    If you wanted a cheap car then Audi wasn`t the way to go imo.

    lol 'cheap' is one thing this car has not been. so far:

    clutch, flywheel, headgasket, valves, cambelt + tensioners, water pump, thermostat, glow plugs, egr delete, wheels, tyres, interior, service and remap. Thats what i can remember off the top of my head, only had the car since july
