Problems with Magnetic ride / suspension

    Im having problems with my magnetic ride on my S3.

    Last year i changed the stock springs to the H&R lowering springs, and everything was good as soon as the springs had settled. until about 2-3 months ago.

    I got my Wagner IC installed. The next day driving the car home from the shop. (all they did was change the IC) it felt like the suspension wasnt working / absorbing anything. bad / uneven roads is REALLY bad, its bad for me as a driver, but even worse for passengers. especially for passengers in the back seats.

    Im still wondering how changing the IC, can effect the suspension? :huh:

    I went to audi a few weeks back. hoping a magnetic ride calibration would help. it felt like it did, for about 10 minutes, then it was back to being undriveable again.

    Today i went back to them, in hope for some clarification. All they did was drive my car for a few minutes, then determined that it drove like it was supposed to, and nothing was wrong. from what i know, they havnt worked on a S3 with magnetic ride before.

    Do anyone know the procedure when calibrating the magnetic ride on a S3 8p?

    I for a fact know that something is wrong, and my cars suspension is nowhere near how it used to be.

    I did consider going back to stock springs front & back. just to see if it would solve my problem.

    let me know if you need any info about the car.

    i need advice, so i can get my S3 back, and drive like it used to :sorry:
