    Differences between these S3 coilovers (Bilstein/H&R)

    Hi guys, I currently have H&R springs on my 2007 S3, got them purely to improve aesthetics. But the ride is a bit crashy so been pricing up Bilstein B8 dampers/shocks (fronts shortened). These cost over £600, which is fine. But then I saw these coilovers on eurocarparts, some are comparable...

    Which shocks with H&R springs - S3

    Hi all, as title really. Happy with ride height on H&R springs on my 3-door '57 S3 but want to sort the bouncyness out, my shocks are probably original 9 year old ones. Should I stick with H&R shocks or go for the oft-recommended Bilstein B8's? Any other decent options? Cheers

    Hi, I'm 99.9% certain the temperature used to display when I went to check it via the DIS but whenever I look now it just shows "---". It was blank with my original red DIS and is still blank with the facelift S3 black/white cluster I've had fitted. It's a '57 S3. I did wonder if it was...

    what brakes for S3 if TTRS/RS3 wont fit?

    looking like the TTRS/RS3 upgrade is going to be a struggle with the wheels I have, so just wondering if there's an alternative. Can add better pads with stock discs/callipers, but can't see any point in swapping the discs out for standard 345mm aftermarket ones. If I go bigger, is there an...
