Lovely looking S1. Do you have the springs fitted in the pics? Looks like standard ride height.

I thought that too SPIKE_S1

I keep considering the H&R Springs but actually don't mind the ride height on the S1 so it would probably be a waste of money as I don't need a firmer ride with the shocking conditions of our roads

Glad you are liking the S1 - I'm almost 3k miles in, and still love to drive it every day.

That does look good - apologies for what my be an obvious question but, does fitting smaller springs affect the dynamic/eco/auto ride settings ?

Hi, just using springs doesnt affect the dynamic suspension, the car feels just like stock springs but sits lower.

So awfully firm in dynamic mode that i feel shorter for every ride :p

Lower springs would put more strain on the shocks though, and they'd eventually give up earlier than at standard height. It does look a lot better for being an inch lower though!

Spacers next?

I dont know how many cars i had but it is many, and all of them had some type of lowering, many with coilovers but some with springs, and i have never ever broken a shockabsorber so im not so worried.

Runing 15mm spacers in back now and 10 in front, looking for some options to try to get the car lowered 10mm more but dont know witch way to go :p

And 19" rims when ever i find something worth buying with 5/100 :)

Finally got my hands on A Quqttro exterior spoiler, if someone else considers to install one, find one in the right colour, beacuse it was not ment to be splited again... NASA graid glue made it a bitch to split before paint :p
