How does it ride now that you have the springs installed? Lowering most cars 2" without new shocks usually ends with a bumpy ride.

Your car looks great! Do you have any problems with your tires rubbing the fender? Did they have to cut your bump stops when they installed the springs?

That looks really nice I think that I have found the springs I want

Where did you pick those up at all I can find is the sport springs I found the race ones on the H&R site but there $350

For me lowering my car does 2 things.
1. gets ride of unsightly wheel gap (of which the A5 has plenty)
2. improves handling

and 1 inch for me isnt enough
and unless potholes have a light bar and can issue me a ticket I could care less about them

No question the two inch lowering looks sick, but I'm afraid that the many areas around Dallas under construction would be too much of a beating.

The H & R sports are the perfect compromise for those of us looking for better handling, lowered stance, and decent ride. Some people have said it rides better on the sports than the OE's. One day...........
