    Hi all

    I’m looking to replace the rear coil springs on my 3 door S Line A3. I went on EuroCarParts, put my number plate in and it returned springs that fit my car. However, when clicking on “fitment detail” none of them are for S Line suspension. They all say “With Sports chassis” or “Without Sports suspension”.

    I checked my rear springs for the colour coding and they have 3 grey dots and 2 yellow dots.

    I cannot find S Line coil springs anywhere - please help! :(

    Got to buy them from Audi or TPS that’s why.
    If I were you, for what it would cost you for 2 new S Line springs then I would buy 4 new eibach pro springs instead. These will probably be cheaper than 2 new s line springs but they are better. They are 5mm lower so it’ll look slightly better but mainly they are a better ride, they aren’t as hard as the s line springs when you’re on a bad road etc and they’re generally just more comfortable. Also they fit perfectly on your s line shocks so if they’re fine on the front then no need to change them either.

    Thanks for the help man!

    I guess that explains why the rear of my car sits uneven. The previous owner changed only the N/S/R spring 01/06/2017 and now the O/S/R sits like 20mm lower. I can only assume they bought the wrong size spring and making it sit uneven!

    Are these the Eibach springs you mention: https://www.cartech-one.co.uk/en/product/117159-eibach-lowering-springs-pro-kit/v-20864

    I’m guessing if I do go for those I’d have to change all 4? Or could I keep the S Line springs on the front and get 2 Eibach Pro’s for the back? Long shot I know but the front springs are fine!

    Yes they’re the ones.

    Yes the previous owner probably bought a spring from ECP and it wouldn’t have been for an S Line but ECP don’t tell you that, so that’s probably why it’s higher on one corner.

    You could keep the S Line springs on the front if you want to but then the car would probably look a bit odd as the back would be slightly lower than the front as the eibachs are roughly 5mm lower than S Line.

    Cheers :)

    Yeah you’re right, I’ll probaly just get a set of 4 Eibachs and be done with the uneven ride height!

    I notice you have an S Line in your profile picture - did you replace the S Line springs with Eibach pros on your A3? Would you mind taking some pictures of the ride height if you can please? :)

    I haven’t got that car in the picture anymore, I’ve got an s Line quattro sportback now but yes I’ve swapped all the springs on mine with eibach pro and standard shocks still and it looks just that little bit lower and it’s a comfier ride. As the guy above says, look on that thread for pics.

    Cheers man I’ll have a read now :)

    Thank you for this really does help! At first I was a little worried about it being slammed and hitting speed bumps etc haha! But as you mention, it’s only a 5mm drop so not drastic enough to cause any problems.

    Definitely.
    Cost of 1 spring from a dealer is the same as the whole eibach kit
