    Which lowering springs to go for?

    There is a pic on this thread that shows where it is, just where the bumper meets the panel. http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/143396-wheel-arch-rub-spacers-s3-8p3-all-else-oem-any-solutions.html

    Which lowering springs to go for?

    I have a sport too with the same springs, had 2 people in the back of the car last week and no rubbing. I cant picture what is behind it, but by removing the wheel arch lining you will get water and dirt spray up where its not supposed to be. Start with removing the screw, if it still rubs you...

    Which lowering springs to go for?

    Jesus, removing the arch linings is quite drastic. You shouldn't be getting any rubbing, you can remove the arch lining screw to see if that helps first. Also, looking at the before ride height I don't see how that would rub unless you are carting around a grand piano. Perhaps its a different...

    Clunk when turning / breaking - Car in limp mode too

    I scanned it and it returns no codes. Which is strange because the "Service!" reminder pops up on ignition and it didn't pick that up. I'm using this: OBD2/EOBD auto code reader---engine trouble shoot for sale - Price,China Manufacturer,Supplier 471100 Is it not to be trusted?

    Wind deflector help ??

    Looks like Graham has a 3 door from the profile pic. I've got team heko deflectors, I find them to be fine. I don't remember what the sound was before so cant comment if there is a big noise difference but I've not noticed anything to make it stick in my mind.

    Which lowering springs to go for?

    Alloys are 18" x 8J. ET 45. Running 225/40/18 Ride is absolutely fine, its defiantly firmer. No problems with speed humps, no rubbing. Not had more than 2 people in the car yet though so cant comment on what its like with a full car, but I try to avoid having more than 2 people in there...

    Which lowering springs to go for?

    Here are some before and after shots of mine on H&R 55's: Before: After: Ride is a bit harder, handles a hell of a lot better in the corners. Much more fun to drive now. Very happy with the drop.

    Clunk when turning / breaking - Car in limp mode too

    Alright guys, Having a few problems of late. Most likely down to me installing new springs and messing something up in the process. Im suddenly getting a single clunk when I first put my car on full lock. I also get it intermittently when braking. Sounds like it is coming from the drivers side...

    Have I just shafted myself?

    Just been out to did out the bit that has sheered off: Sorry, I have been a bit unclear. I think what I did was disturb the CV joint from the end of the drive shaft and when put it all back together, I didn't slot them together tight enough. That bit should be on the end of the drive...
