    You also know you need to lower your car when you've just fitted coilovers and the lads ask why you've raised it?!?!

    Dude! I had eibach coil overs fitted to my TT by a company called Ashford motorsport in Kent, and when I got there to check, the height was higher than standard shocks!! I had a quick look and the "Eibach" written on the rear springs was upside down (which I pointed out).. the owner laughed and started taking the piss out of me, saying "stick to your day job" you know nothing about tuning.. In the end I took it to the TTshop in Milton Keynes to have some other mods, and to check it over cos I just weren't happy with Ashford motorsports' work.
    Turns out they HAD put the rear springs on upside down (amongst other things) the fooking muppets! If you live in this area, stay clear of these idiots..

    And I too am gonna have to lower me baby, my mate has been referring to it as "the q5" for the last few weeks lol.. No quite as high as a q7 tho I spose?

    What:gun2:!! The main bloke is called "H".. And they are full of sh1t then.. They cost me loads to put their bodges right, let alone the other mates of mine that got ripped off, parts went missing from their cars and other shoddy workmanship issues. Not mentioning the 3 insurance fires they have had.. Just shows how much of a bunch of smalltime lying cowboys they are:aggressive:

    And also it was full coil overs not springs.... What company do you work for that you would consider using such a poxy little outfit like Ashford motorsport.

    And they broke my headlight level thingies at the back, fitted my milltek wonky, I had two boost leaks from the **** job they did of my fmic and I caught the guy caning my pride and joy round the roundabouts on the local bypass.. When the TTshop got my car on the ramps I think they just felt sorry for me! Ended up with all the mechanics stood under my car pointing at stuff and shaking their heads!

    That 1st TT is absolutely spot on... Amazing what a drop and some 20's can do for a motor.... On another note what's with the TT stock of pics N8 your not thinking of becoing a hairdresser now are ya? Too much work done on ur SB to get rid anytime soon no??

    Sparki you've made my mind up mate, it's time we left the Audi q owners club... I'm gonna order some h&r springs tomorrow (may get the arb's too) only thing is I think I can't go as low as a FWD with mine being a quattro? That right?
