    S3 H&R Lowering Springs Fitted, Car sits higher than before!

    Jacked it up, dropped the wheels off and the problem was staring me in the face. I’m gob-smacked that he let it leave his workshop like this. This was the same on both sides, the shocks were a good 40mm out of their seat in the hubs hence the car being sat so high. Needless to say, i’m...

    S3 H&R Lowering Springs Fitted, Car sits higher than before!

    I've had a look on the H&R website and it looks like the 3 and 5-door variant both get the same set. I'm starting to fear however that I may have been sent the set for an A3 rather than an S3. I'm going to take a wheel off at the weekend and check the part number printed on the spring, that...

    S3 H&R Lowering Springs Fitted, Car sits higher than before!

    Thanks for all the responses! The springs were brand new from Awesome GTi and as far as I could tell, were the correct ones for this car. Is there anything that my mechanic could have done wrong during the install that would cause this?

    S3 H&R Lowering Springs Fitted, Car sits higher than before!

    Thanks Gazwould, is that a straight forward job - ie, could I tackle it myself on the drive with a trolly jack and axle stands

    S3 H&R Lowering Springs Fitted, Car sits higher than before!

    Hi All, Been a while since my last post as I stepped away to the dark side for a few years but am now once again, the proud owner of an S3. I have searched for an answer to my issue but can't find anything that helps. As the title suggests, I had a set of H&R Lowering Springs fitted last week...

    Addiction Motorsport Adjustable Rear Arms

    So a slight turn in this story. I actually sold the car at the weekend so never got round to fitting! Have listed them on eBay for a bargain price if anyone's interested. Will stick a link up in the classified section.

    Addiction Motorsport Adjustable Rear Arms

    Hi All, Just after a bit of advice if possible? I've just availed myself of a set of 20mm lowering springs, new top mounts and rear spring pads and a set of Addiction Motorsport adjustable rear arms. I was wondering if anyone who has fitted them might be able to share their experience before...

    Headlight Swap

    Thanks Tuffty, I had hoped you might know! Mine is a facelift, do you know if it will be a straight forward plug and play or will I need to splice the loom?

    Headlight Swap

    I know this is not the usual route/upgrade/downgrade but does anyone know if it's possible to swap the standard S3 Xenon lights for a set of standard A3 Halogens? Is the wiring totally different?

    Front Wheel Hubs

    Hi All, I am having difficulty locating a new N/S/F hub for my 2001 S3. I have tried several suppliers so far but they all seem to be struggling to get the right part. My hub has the hub nut rather than the bolt and has an integrated ABS ring. Where do people normally go for this sort of...

    S3 Headlight Issue

    Hi All, I recently lost my O/S headlight which of course threw a warning light on the dash. After some investigation I discovered it was not the bulb so ordered a set of new bulbs and ballasts from T8ups (at a great price!). I have replaced bulbs and ballasts (not an easy task) and everything...

    what a nice forum we are today

    This forum is by far one of the best out there. I have owned a LOT of cars as tend to change them every 6 - 12 months due to boredom (though the S3 is going to be around for a while I feel!) and with every car I have owned I've always used forums for their technical knowledge and insight. I...
