I have stock suspension height. What would look best do you think, and what would be pros/cons if any? Or, does it make a difference?

I had the same question...I ended up ordering 15mm front and 20mm rear for stock wheels and height...hopefully they will arrive in the next few days and I can get some pictures up. There are pictures of this setup from another user on audiworld.com, just search for custom wheel spacers in the S5 forum.

I run 20MM/25MM (F/R) on my S5 that is lowered 1" via H&R springs. Looks very mean (IMHO) with this spacer set-up although I do get a little rub in the rear :)D) over big bumps (not sure if this would also be the case with a stock ride height).

My sig has my settings. I still graze the ground occassionally but not as bad since I went to coilovers. It was a lot worse with the H&R Springs.

May be a stupid question but is it possible that the spacers cause negative effect on the Audi Drive Select or have some other problems?

If you have drive select you should forget about playing with the spacers and ride height. No-one has been brave enough to try it yet so you would be a pioneer. Gut feeling is that it would play the drive select up.

I've put the OE H&R springs on an 09 S5 with drive select. No issues. Its been almost a month.

Having an issue with spacers causing vibrations in the front on a non-drive select S5 though.

Based upon your post, I inferred that you're not the owner/driver of either of those cars, but rather the installer of the aftermarket components. Is that correct?

I'd be curious to know if there was any noticeable differences in ride quality after installing the H&R springs on the S5 with Drive Select.

Oh yeah, please update your profile to reflect your location. Thanks.

Check out this thread with pics of 15mm spacers on the 19" Y-design wheels. It is a nice improvement over the stock setup.

Thanks they look real nice... I think I'm going to put on 15mm on the front and 15mm or 20mm on the back.
