    Hi

    I know this question has probably been asked before. but here goes. i have a 2011 A3 black edition 2.0tdi i'm wanting to put coilovers and wheel spacers on.

    we've just had a little one so wondering what the overall ride will feel like. i don't mind the sline harshness but don't want to be driving something that going to rattle my fillings out lol.
    i see you mentioned v-maxx coils are the most comfortable so I'm guessing you'll suggest these. if so how much are these?

    I also would like some wheels spacers. I've read that (i think i remember this right) most common are 10mm front and 10/12mm rear. we generally have me and my partner in the front, little one in the rear and time-time 1 adult in the rear. what are your views on rear?
    Also how much would both front and rear cost?

    All help would be appreciated,

    Many thanks

    Jamie

    Hi Damian

    Thanks your help. Just wondering is there much difference in the v-maxx and the v-maxx plus kit. Is this work the extra £ for the ride quality and looks?

    Im away this week is it possible to tell what size strut is in my car without looking?
    Many thanks

    Morning,

    The V-Maxx Plus has adjustable damping where as the normal V-Maxx kit is just height adjustable.

    The Black Edition 2.0TDI will most likely be a 55mm front strut.

    HI Mate

    just looking at some more options, will the 8/10mm front 12mm rear spacers still be the same if i was to buy rs3 rotors instead of my 18inch rotors?

    Afternoon,

    It would depend on offset.

    Depending on the condition of your current ones, the front top mounts are a worth while change whilst the suspension is off.
