What ever you do, remember the rear tie bars need replacing for lowering, otherwise ur looking at scrubbed tyres...

I went for 40mm on my A3 and i found that the front was higher then the back? But yea if you go to low it can be a nightmare. Have you thought about paying the extra and getting some coilovers? Maybe well worth doing!

From what ive seen i notied that the springs on the S3 are alot wider then the A3. I think the S3 and the 1.8T quatrro have differant springs also. Mainly because if i look for coilovers at an online store the quatrro and the S3 come up seperatly but i dont know.
