    a3 sb spacers

    Right spacer width depends on your wheel's specs... In most cases 10-15mm spacers work fine, but tell me size, width and ET of your wheels and tires, if your car is lowered or not and then I'll tell you what to buy..

    Spacers on stock springs

    Every wheel has its specs stamped inside. But if you are running oem A3/S3 18" speedlines then they probably have same specs as I mentioned, so it would look like mine. In case you are running 19's speedlines, there are much more possibilities. So to be 100% sure, check the inside of your wheel...

    Spacers on stock springs

    Hi there, had 20mm spacers out back with 7.5x18 ET54 225/40 wheels on... I had no issues with rubbing or so as long as it wasn't lowered, maybe it sometimes slighlty rubbed on speedbumbs when I was too faast lol... Once my car was lowered, wheels sometimes rubbed a bit, but nothing terrible...

    Advice.. On AP Coilovers

    Hi mate, had the same problem but there is way how to lower your car on ap's even more. On the rear you just easily remove the adjuster and on the front cut off piece of strut, but I highly doubt if this is the right solution for you, because with this mod you'll lose warranty... Anyway here is...

    How to: Need to lower (not only) AP coils? Partially solved here!

    Hi guys, At first I would like to apologize for my English, but I'll try hard to clearly explain what to do. Before After Problem As many of us know, AP coilovers doesn't allow to go as low as many of us wanted to, especially front ones. So I have tried to find at least a partial solution...

    Will a 5 door bonnet fit a 3 door?

    Yes. Edit: But pay attention to the shape of the bonnet, because in 2005 came facelift version (singleframe/large grill), so basically there are two types of bonnets in 2005 (facelift 05-08 and prefacelift 03-05). Sportback was only made with singleframe grill, so if your A3 3 door has also...

    Running AP coils all way down, 10mm spacers front, 20mm spacers rear (rim 7,5" wide, ET 54 and 225 wide tire) and bit more negative camber. Sometimes it rubs slightly, nothing serious...

    Unfortunately it is not 100% accurate, you can recognise strut diameter from brake caliper - more here . As said, I have 1.9 tdi 2003, same as my friend and we each have different struts, just because mine is sport version and his not.

    What audi are these rims from ?

    Try to search through ... They could be from A4 B8 (maybe allroad) - ET45 7.5" wide would look the best on standard, better than ET50+ and not agricultural. Tires are bit large 225/50R17, but I think it will work fine..
