    Let us know how you get on!
    The main reason why mine aren't on yet is I'm getting a knock from the back over speed bumps every now and again.
    It may be the top mounts, there is a known issue with magride cars so mine may be affected.

    I have the Eibach prokit springs paired with the Bilstein B8 shocks (the Bilstein B12 kit). The drop depends on which suspension you start with, but the final ride height of my car is Fender-to-Ground 25.5" both front and rear.

    IMHO, it rides great. It is much more settled compared to the standard S3 suspension and it is as comfortable as the A3 sport suspension. Best of both worlds.

    Have you decided to go the Eibach route rather than VWR?

    Still undecided myself.

    Yes but I did decide on H&R but when I went into LK performance and apparently H&R didn't do a spring for mine yet anyway long story short I got a decent deal on the eibach and fitting I also am getting my alloys from there so ease of making one trip

    You must be close to me then if you called into LK?
    I also have the H&R springs in the garage so no idea why they say they aren't available. Surely they are the same pre and post facelift!

    I went to Wakefield Audi originally about 3 year ago to buy a TTS they were so rude and looked down on me because I was only 21 at the time ended up with an S3. Went to go buy my new s3 from there again last year and again they laughed me off so rude. Ended up at Huddersfield and they were fantastic. And I'm on 18s mate

    Haha well I've just turned 50, I think they cringe when I go in though lol
    It'll look nicer with 19's once lowered, I prefer oem or BBS though tbh

    It says 20mm front and 15/20mm on the back but I'm more then happy with the drop im not a fan of slammed and I still retain practicality.
    Note it also has 15mm spacers on the front and 20 on the rear

    That’s what I was thinking your first post was referring to the Pro kit which is only a 10mm drop I thought it looked more from your pics.

    Yes it is mate, I’ve now a 25mm drop front and rear with the mag setup which I think is about right.

    Eibach Pro kit after it was first done on 18s. It's dropped slightly since then as it has bedded in I'm guessing.

    Ride is a big improvement, much more stable and less drama under acceleration/braking. Just have to go a bit slower over speed bumps, not a big deal.

    Not sure if you have magride, but if you don't, get the Bilstein B8 shocks to go with the Eibach springs (matched B12 kit).

    I have that setup and is definitely the best suspension setup I have ever driven.

    I don't suppose you could measure the distance from floor to arch could you?
    I have a set of pro's ready to go on, albeit on a sportback
    Looks good :rock:

    Wheel centre to arch would probably be a better measurement then tyre pressures and alloy size do not come into play.

    Fair point, it's just easier to stick a tape measure on the deck!
