    Eibach seems to be the kit to go with .... Also depends if you can handle stiff ....

    As in eibach is one of the comfortable ones ....
    Others aren't so road happy ....

    You have an S3?

    If so then, it will only be the fronts from eibach .... They paired the spring rates to the rear and just made them lower .... Handles better apparently.

    If you have an A3 then there is a full kit for it.

    View attachment 162142 View attachment 162142 I have Eibach 20mm lowering springs on my S3 which i am sure i sourced from @DPM and they are brill plus worth every penny , mind when you lower you will need to get shorter shocks ( well i had too ) . Heres a pic off the front off mine lowered just to give you an idea .

    Get new rears then .... Unless you like rough riding lowering springs, you should stay with eibach/OEM .... racingline and other brands seem quite rough .... I've run racingline R/S3 springs for awhile and there super stiff .... I'm swapping to eibach shortly ....

    I’ve just swapped the stock rear springs for new ones on my 2010 s3. it was literally an hour job. Saved 200 quid labour charge that Audi wanted
