      Not bad at all. ~$100 off ECS' price, and much better than coilovers for this 'small' drop.

      Now the question is... do I swap them out with a full set of Koni FSD's or swap out just my front premiums with Konis/s-line shocks?

      Bilstein Sport shoud be in the running if you want serious handling.
      My 2 eurocents.

      Audi is the girl who was really cute in high school, but now puts on way too much makeup in order to try and hang out with the hot girls.

      genuinevwaudiparts.com lists the fronts for $87.84 each and the rears for $70.20 each, so $316 for the set of four

      that is more reasonable imo. maybe ill give them a call tomorrow and see what the wait is.

      Installed mine 2 weeks ago, the rear suspension is creaking. Any one know why?

      Its only really evident when the left and right are at different height i.e. going over a speed bump.

      Thanks, but not really looking for super performance. This is my year-round DD and WI pot-hole-filling season is just beginning. I'm looking forward to the ~1.7" drop from premium and less body roll. I heard the FSDs soften out the euros, and the stock s-lines aren't half bad either.

      Fun to see this thread back from the dead! I traded my A3 in 2 cars ago (I started this thread), but haven't been on the A3 forum for awhile.

      We bought these springs, back when the dollar was much weaker against the pound, so if you get them from VAGPARTS over there the price should be much better now.

      I had 4 different suspension set ups on my A3, and these euro sports were by far the best. I paired them with Koni FSD's, which I never liked, and was in the process of ordering the proper euro shocks, when The stock market crashed and I traded down to a 09 GTI.

      I'll try my memory and help if there sre any questions.

      everfresh/(whoever wants to answer), I combed through a few pages but didn't find the info i wanted so i'll just ask... how much of a drop are the euro s-line over the US s-line?

      I'm interested in knowing what the new price is as well since the dollar is better against the euro these days as WISVW said.

      I would need to be persuaded into buying these. Definitely interested as I am in the market for coilovers. What are the advantages of these/ or why do people want them over coilovers. I want lowr.

      Anyway, I just emailed BKS to see. Also did a google search for the part numbers and found a company selling the fronts set for $80.

      From what I've been reading online, you get a similar drop as Eibach's, but without the bottoming out. I really want to pair this with Koni FSD's. I don't think I want to go lower since I'm installing a Cupra lip on me non sline.

      Part numbers for sline springs that WILL work with 2.0T FWD:

      8P0411105E
      8P0511115BJ

      I've found the Quattro model on OEMplus, but they won't fit.

      If we can get these springs for 3-350 shipped, I'd be a happy camper. Best price I've found to date is $535.00 plus shipping from ECS, and that just ain't happening...

      Here's a great thread with before and after....

      http://forums.fourtitude.com/showthr...t=euro+springs

      I'm on non-sline springs, and it seems I'll drop a minimum of 1 inch, pretty much what I'm looking for. I'll probably add spacers in the end as well...

      Asal, looks like your TDI, so heavier engine? Might equate to lower stance?

      My best guess would be 1.1 inch drop after it settles. I'm good with this, simply because I can cheap out on suspension in the future knowing that my springs are stock.

      Well maybe WISVW has an idea since I think he organized the order from Vagparts, but alas they are no more...stupid world economy!

      There was also mention of OEMplus as a potential vendor earlier in the thread, maybe they could get them?

      So I emailed BKS to get an idea as to how much it would cost if we do a GB and have them ship the springs to each buyer. I'll let you all know when I get the response.

      Have you guys tried your local dealership? Mine said they could get them, but I will have to pay upfront and no returns because it is a Euro part.

      Yea, I can get them for about 480. I'll probably end up going the local route. I'm gonna pair them with KONI STR.T shocks. I'll hold off till next week in case a GB starts...

      At this rate BKS should just give fourtitude and vortex members a discount lol. First the RS3 spoilers and the LED tail lights. Lol

      Exact setup I was going to get. I contacted MJM Motorsports and they put up a good price with the Koni's and B&G springs. I am debating between the two.

      Need to ask a noob question in here. Just purchased a used 2011 A3. FWD 2.0t. VIN brings the car up as a 2.0t FWD Premium. Has S-line badges all over it. It's completely stock. I know it did not come with the 18inch Sport package (per Audi's website would mean a sport suspension). As I read through the thread I keep seeing people refer to their suspension as the s-line or premium package. If I have an s-line badged car, non 18inch sport, but the Premium model; how do I know what springs are actually on the car? I'm assuming the s-line is just an exterior package in my case.

      ^^^

      Here is the deal with your 2011. Your car has S-line styling, but not a true S-line package. The full package includes the s-line suspension, however, in 2011, they made all premium A3's with S-line styling. So you get the front bumper, rear bumper styling and badging, but nothing associated with the suspension. It is kind of a "pseudo-sline".

      So, the premium suspension sits higher than the S-line suspension by an average of .75" - 1". The european s-line springs will drop your premium suspension by 1.25" or more. They are a great choice because it gives you OEM ride quality and the drop that most of us desire. It will not look "slammed", just more aggressive than our American S-line A3's.

      Awesome, thanks for the response. That was my thought but I really wasn't sure. Yea, these springs are an attractive option. I'm one of those people looking for a bit of a drop but with keeping close to factory specs. It might be pricey to some but for people like me who would consider HPA SHS coils or highly tuned V3s for crappy streets at $1500+ for a set, $500 springs is a steal.

      Already did this:

      8P0 511 115 BJ pc 85USD

      So the total would be:

      That's not too bad for 1 person. Let's get a GB with BKS and get it closer to $350

      I didn't think they could but was told they would have to be ordered with full payment and then 6-8 week wait time. Unless we can get a group buy and save some $$$, I'm gonna place my order next week since it's a long wait...

      i'm definitely interested if we can lock down who we're getting it from, & price of course. I don't care about lead time personally, i'm ok waiting 12 weeks if I can get a great deal
