A little update, I decided that I would go for the Larkspeed Eibach 50/40 lowering springs with standard shocks, part number E21-85-016-02-22.
I fitted these about a week ago now and they have changed the car massively, he handles a lot better and looks so much better.
Here is a pickie from today :-bd

I think the springs have dropped the car between 20mm-25mm but it looks more.

I have also popped on a couple of chrome exhaust tips which have finished off the back end nicely.

I can't wait to finish detailing once all this snow has disappeared.

Thanks gazwould for all of the advice about the springs. Much appreciated ^:)^

Nice indeed , why do some people bother with coilovers ?

Liking the oem+ look , simplicity - less is more , no obvious mods , no silly big wheels etc .

Have you done the wheel alignment ?

Looks B-) britney.
I'm weighing whether to drop my sport estate.
Have you had any arch rub or b'stard speed hump issues?

Hi Everyone,

New to this forum & I’ve got my first diesel so went for the B7 2.0tdi 170bhp sport estate. Just had a custom remap to 236bhp & 454NM which makes it a bit more fun to drive.

I’m currently looking at changing the wheels to some 19’s but can’t make my mind up so I’m looking for your opinions. RS6 Style or RS7 Style?

eBay item no’s
173279245912 - RS6+
173279245906 - RS7

Thanks
Ben
