So I bought some 19 and they just didn't look all the great with the stock sport suspension. After some searching I decided to go with Teins S4 springs. I also painted the calipers red, tinted the windows, and painted the wheel spokes black. The stance it has now with being lowered is much nicer. I should have been this way from factory.

Here are the before:

Feel free to leave feed back on the new look.
Thanks,

If you were wondering I'm running 235/35/19...with spacers. I am using the stock sport shocks as it stated it was ok to use them. At some point I will change them out too.

So why tein S4 and not A4 springs? wouldnt the s4's make it raise in the front since the s4 engine is heavier?

From my searching on forums I found out that the S4 and A4 with the 2.8 can share the same springs/shocks. small weight difference but not much....I had the sport suspension too from stock.

The S4 springs I got were actually lowering springs, so it wouldn't raise it.

A big deciding factor was the price.
You can pick S4 springs up for $160 shipped new, and if you look for A4 springs they are $240 or more.

From what I read, on the 1.8 it will raise it, but on the 2.8 it will work fine.
