    as some of you know it was my intention to drop the car with coilovers however I now have to spend the majority of the money i had sorted for them on other bits (mainly for the morris) so my question is....

    Im looking to drop the car by about 40mm all round and was wondering what we the best springs to achieve this, as I understand it the sport is already lower than a std a4 so what have you guys got?

    i suspect those cheap coilovers will be horrible.

    Its just not possible to make a good quality product for that kinda money.

    IMO, if you do the job cheaply first time round, you'll only end up having to spend more money to do it again properly when the cheap parts either fail, or you realise its like driving around with no suspension at all.

    Go with the Pro-Kit, then when you have some more cash, install some better shocks.

    if your car doesnt have aircon you will want:

    if it does have aircon:

    Just done Eibach's on my A4, very pleased. Doesn't look too much lower than it was but it certainly is stiffer and feels loads better. It does look a little lower now it's had time to settle
