    Hi I'm new to the forum and have a a6 c7 s line in ibis white with 20 inch rs7 wheels
    I love the look of the car but it's sitting like a monster truck . Looking to lower it about half an inch from the tire but have been told that if i put 35mm springs in it will only lower it 15/20 35m as the car is 10mm lower because it's an s line.
    Was hoping some advice on my options as I don't really want to go down the coilover route.

    For the S-line model you need to take off around 15-20mm from any quoted drop.

    Possibly get some slightly taller tyres to help fill gap.

    Ive got a brand new set of H&R Sport springs in my garage that i bought and never fitted. I am now looking to sell the car so i would be happy to pass them on to you if they are suitable for your car?

    Believe the code is 28917-4, but i will check tomorrow when im home. Im sure i paid £80 of another member on here, so i would just be looking for the same with postage covered.

    Yeah, they will be for the 3.0 engines. The user i bought them off had an A7 3.0, and i remember checking to make sure the springs were the same between the models (which they are).

    Not sure what drop they would give on a 2.0, but the different engine weights may play apart on the spring rates. I'm not qualified to say that though!!
