Congrats! Your car look amazing
Your h&r sports spring look more like the OE (1" drop)
I have an S5 and can't make up my mind if I should go with OE or sports springs
I have a new A5 BE plus,
Is the lowering an expensive item to do?
Looks very nice, has settled well.
I recently went for 20/f 25/r H&R DRA setup but found that my tyres are poking out from the arches giving it the 4x4 look. So I decided that I need to put the 20mm on the back and stick 15mm on the front like the OP.
My question is does anyone know the best place to buy the extended bolts from? I am currently using the DRA system but 15mm ones will require the longer bolts. I think i need 43mm long ball seat ones?
You do indeed. I got mine off eBay.
Although also check the size of the bolt head, as I think Audi have a 17mm bolt head, whereas the extended bolts I bought have a 19mm bolt head. Just means you can't use the wrench in the Audi boot. I bought a torque wrench with 3 sizes for the bolt head adaptor, so not a massive issue.
Thanks buddy, I will check that out. Just to confirm its the M14 x 1.5 ones I need right?
Also, can i get away with 40 or 45mm thread length. Does anyone know the tolerance?
Sorry if I am hijacking the thread.
car looks great.
just to confirm you have the 1BE suspension previously and have fitted the 35mm sprt springs not the 25mm OE springs?
i am undecided which way to go but if thisis the 35mm i might go this way as the arch gap is what i want.
do you struggle with the front at all on speed bumps or multi story car parks?
