Installed at ~1000mi

ride quality good, stiffer than stock, noticeable. Seems to be smoothing out, with 1200 miles driven on them. Car handles MUCH better through windy roads

Hi Paul
I bought the springs from:

https://www.emdauto.com/collections/8v- ... 2065145927

Turns out they were sort of local to me so i had EMD install them at their shop. Nice guys!

I based my decision from poking around the web and finding this post: https://www.audizine.com/forum/showthre ... Design-VWR

I will say that the ride comfort is very much that of a lowered car, and not the same as OEM (as the s3 guy posted). Road imperfections are very noticeable, and the ride is overall much stiffer. Also - A3 etron carries a 200lbs weight penalty over S3, which makes a little difference. That being said, i used to drive an S2000 honda, so this feeling is not new for me.

I do feel the handling has improved +100%! A3 etron is not exactly a high powered light weight go-kart, but the lowered center of gravity makes sweepers quite a lot of fun, and the car is overall much more nimble feeling, especially in dynamic steering mode. The car is MUCH more fun to drive with this mod.

Hope this helps!

This helps greatly. One final question, what tires are you using?
