      Hey Marc,

      I just got a set of ST's and never owned an Audi before, this was the first time I saw the helper springs. I won't be slammed by any means (24-25" GTF) yet should I think of taking these helper springs out?

      What are the helper springs in the front for? Added travel? They make the ride stiffer or softer? (Sorry if these are dumb questions, just never seen anything like this before)

      Thanks James, I'm really happy with how it turned out.


      And the helpers are there to make the car ride better but with them in they dont go low enough. I would just remove them when you install them so you dont have worry about them in the future. The ride doesnt change much imo. At first i thought with helpers it was less bouncy but after a few days it felt the same.

      Ok, good to know.

      Just never seen them before and wondered if they actually served a goodpurpose or not.

      Thanks.

      there are these 'phillips' turn signal replacement bulbs which have a nice chrome coating that actually lasts! I bought mine when i went to the valeo 1 piece projectors more than 3.5 years ago and they are still perfect! I would not suggest going for the valeos since they cost quite a bit but i hear depot ecodes are much cheaper these days...i reckon you should give those a look

      you could spray your amber bulbs silver. i think mine have been like that for over a year and i haven't had any problems. cleans up the front end a lot and it's dirt cheap.

      Make sure you use high-temp paint if you do that

      Even at night it doesn't melt? I was always told to use high temp. I really don't like having painted bulbs in anymore so I have regular ambers. I'd love to find a set that comes silver
