    Hi Damian

    Moving out of my A4 B7 into an A4 B8, an as usual looking at lowering options. As with the B7 the B8 sits higher on the front end, I put Eibach 50/40 springs on the B7 (thanks for the advice), is it the same with the B8 pal.

    Or what are your recommendations, it's currently sitting on 19" rims (not sure if 19's are standard but will be staying).

    Looked at these, but not sure if to much and will rub!!

    TIA

    Saloon or Avant ?

    As I imagine the rear axle weight for the Avant springs will be higher.

    Thanks.

    I'd suggest the Eibach 45mm/35mm Sportline kit and in my opinion it does give the best stance.

    Let me know if you're interested and I can get a price and lead time over for you.

    Thanks Damian, picking the car up tomorrow, will measure the current gap, as, if i'm right and it works the same as the B7 then the front will lower 15mm so might have to go down the coilover route if not enough.

    Can you price springs please and your rec on coilovers should I decide to go that way.

    Cheers pal

    Quite a few different coilover kits available, did you have a budget or brand in mind?
