Hi all, my first audi, a3 8v saloon, and only my 3rd car ever owned!
Been working on a few bits for it, so far chrome deleted, rear badge delete with black audi rings fitted. Painted my calipers blue.
Next up is spring change, I have s line suspension and am looking for a further drop as wheel to arch gap is too big. I am not sure what to go for, eibach pro kit or eibach sportline, have seen some posts but still not clear to me. If I fit Pro kit will it be any lower than s line springs!?
Thanks.

Thanks Damian, I am looking to lower my audi a3 8v s line saloon 2.0tdi, it has multi link rear suspension (pic attached), using eibach springs and would like some advise please.
Would eibach sportlines need any other modifications not to rub anywhere? I currently have standard s line 18 x 8.0j 5 parallel spoke wheels, et 51 (I think this is, right). Probably won't be changing them any time soon as they are mint, may change the colour later.
I have been looking on various websites for sportlines, but most only have one part number, where yours has two numbers, is this to flatten out the stance? (your website part nos attached) as other sites show only 1 part number?
I have also included a pic of a car near mine that has the look I would like, don't think the pro kit will be enough of a change.
Last question, I have seen I should change top mounts and bushes while it is in bits? And is this for front only?
Thank you, Dustin.
