I was talking to a guy at a local Audi tuner shop and he suggested I get the "Euro Spec" springs for my S4 to reduce ride height and body sway. He said the European versions of the S4 have different springs than the US version.

Is this true? i haven't heard of anyone buying "Euro Spec" (ie. Audi OEM European) springs, but rather some other aftermarket springs and/or coilovers.

Hi Doug,

Sometimes vehicles overseas have springs that lower the vehicle more than the stock US market springs do.

I am honestly not sure however if there are "Euro" springs for your B7. Does anyone else know?

Thanks for your reply. Based on what I have been reading in the various forums, it sounds as though going the coilover route is the way to go if I want to lower the car a little but maintain a good quality ride (firm, but not harsh or bouncy.

I'm now looking at which coilovers for a mainly street application.
