    Is it possible to change the suspension on an A3 8V Sport to an S Line spec suspension, if so how difficult is it and is it really worth it? Also is it difficult to get a hold of an OEM S Line suspension?

    My personal go to would be the Bilstein B12 Pro kit, which comes with Bilstein B8 shocks and Eibach Pro springs. On the standard Sport suspension it would give you a small drop on fronts and rears.

    A3 Sport - 26.5"
    B12 - 25.5"

    In terms of ride harshness it won't be much different to Sport suspension but it would be a lot comfortable with improved handling.

    B12 is slightly expensive kit and you can go with only Eibach Pro springs to improve things slightly which would be slightly less expensive option.

    Apart from B12 there are other slightly less expensive options available as well, which I am sure others will be able to contribute.

    Oh, that sounds pretty good actually, I'll take a look. I want to keep the look as stock as possible, so I take it the drop wont look too noticeable externally. Do you know the height of the S Line suspension?

    It's a centimeter lower than sport if memory serves me correctly. Same height as non mag ride S3 suspension.

    Is there a noticeable comfort difference between the sport and the s-line suspension on 8V?
