    Thread: 2.0t Euro S-line springs Group buy!!

    1. 02-24-2012 02:53 PM #201
      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 411 105 E pc 109USD
      8P0 511 115 BJ pc 85USD

      So the total would be:

      $388

      Local audi dealer or local vendor? Thought these couldn't be ordered through AOA?

      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 in for sure... I'm fairly patient, so I can wait.

      If there's anyone one else interested, let us know!

      In case you want to know how low it'll go...

      Total price is $443 shipped to your front door, max, but could go lower:

      We could get the price lower if we shipped it to one location and then had that person ship them back out. Also, I can probably beat them up on price a bit more if we get some definite interest.

      I contacted 6 other german dealers including an Audi Dealership and none of them were willing to ship or could get the parts.

      So who is interested?

      so it's $55 in shipping? damn i was thinking the $388 included shipping since the postings from 2010 were around $350 shipped. I don't think I'm in unless we can get it under $400...though i really want these!

      Like Rawaudi said... it can be cheaper if it's shipped to one location and then re-shipped out to everyone from there.... but for under $450.00 it don't bother me....especially if we aren't enough buyers to make a decent GB.

      I might be able to get a discount directly from a local dealer, waiting for a response to see what he can do if we can get 5-10 users interested in the springs.

      kb, do you have any experience with the koni springs? Would they be comparable to the euro springs? It says 35mm drop for the konis, which sounds like up to another .5" drop over the euro springs from what people are reporting...

      I think the others that I saw were the HRE Sport Spring, which is about the same drop as the konis at @ 1.3" F+R.

      Shipping to one person would be 99$. Cost to redistribute should be minimal, probably do not have to use much packing material.

      I'm in Canada, which in itself might pose a problem. My Audi guy here said he would beat any price if we can get a Group buy going. I would assume it'll much cheaper to ship from here then from Germany.

      We just need more buyers and this can happen!
