Hi there, any e-tron fans around? Just got a 17 Premium w/ Sport Package after spending 5 months on an A4 Premium Plus.

Just placed an order for a set of S3 19" OEM take offs and waiting on Emmanuele Desing to confirm fitment of lowering springs.

Also looking for any available OBDeleven coding besides the current apps.

Congratulations. I bought pretty much the exact same car last month (color as well). I'm loving it so far.

Just yesterday I did my first fill-up after getting my e-tron on May 19th. Drove aprox 1,200kms, getting 3.3L/100km or about 71MPG. People here have gotten much better than that, if fuel efficiency is your goal.

Congrats salvadorsantana !
It looks great now and no doubt it'll look even more awesome when you lower it and put on those rims.
Any problems with your dealership experience when buying the e-tron?
Did you order it or was it an in-stock model?

Thanks for sharing.

Hi there, yes Im hopping for that too since lowering springs are limited to only the Eibach and some other weird brand in Europe, I ordered Eibach from Germany today, hopefully doesn't take forever to reach the USA.

No problems at all, I am a regular customer from theirs. It was an in stock model.

Regarding OBDeleven mods, everything I've done to my '16 Premium has been via apps. (I was even successful enabling the passenger mirror dip on reverse.) I really need to look into adaptations and long coding, as I'd like to change the behavior of the rear brake lights and turn signal, and not the silly urban joke stuff.

Your question got me to thinking about this, and I plugged my OBDeleven in for a while this evening. Took me about 30-40 minutes in the 09 Central Electrics adaptations, but I was successfully able to reconfigure my rear turn signals and brake lights to work like the rest of the world. Much happier this way, I dislike combined brake/signals.

So here it is, after getting Eibach springs shipped from Germany (for some reason they do not sell the E-Tron application here in USA) and S3 take off wheels and tires.

PD: waiting now on S3 view mirror brushed aluminum caps.

Thanks! The ride I would compare it to OEM...I still need to align the car but so far so good. No noise at all, 19's are wrapped with Pirelli P Zero from factory...they are quite! I used to have these same tires on my Porsche Macan with 21's and it was like riding on clouds lol.

PD: I will do the alignment on saturday to allow the springs to settle.

I had emmanuele design do the work too. Weird, they said they couldnt find any info on the Eibach springs, so I ordered them myself. I was just there this wed (June 21).

Anyway, did you think the Emmanuele Design Springs were too aggressive?
