I am having trouble picking out coilovers for my a3...

I have an s-line 2.0t with 19's and need to drop the car now. Looking forward to the lowered stance and less sloppy handling. I am looking for ride height and dampening (rebound and compression would be nice) adjustability.
Looking for a comfortable ride- not stiff or too bouncy...and would like to lower as much as possible without rubbing in rear with passengers and potholes/ dips in the road. Also, car is daily driven and probly will only see the track once or twice for 1/4 mi runs.

I am considering KW V.2/V.3, HR, Koni... any experience with these or other suggestions?

I know there are other companies out there but dont know who offers them for the A3.


Thanks![up]

A few weeks ago we installed STaSIS' StreetSport coilover kit on an A3 2.0T. The client (~50yrs old) is incredibly impressed with ride and handling.
We have another client with an Mk5 GTi 2.0T who has the same kit and dropped on 19" OZ's and he loves it too.

STaSIS StreetSport coilover kit for 8P A3/Mk5; 4 KONI sport dampers; single adjustable (rebound), narrow band; front is top adjustable; disassembly required for rear adjustment; silver chromate plated threaded steel damper bodies; height adjustable; 4 progressive rate KONI springs (220lb. front/rear spring rate); balanced and adjusted on SPA damper dynamometer
$1095

Please let me know if we can help at all.
