Quick question gentlemen... I've got the A5 1.8Tfsi with the sport chassi. I understand the sport chassi is lowered by 10mm from the factory. I tend on going down 25mm more. Now can someone show me a pic of this setup to see how it looks, if indeed someone has done just this mod?
I did a search but came up only with folks who have done extreme lowering on S5's...

That should be fine to do, the S5 is even lower to start with and it can be lowered even more than that.
Thanks lot for the reply. It would be nice if someone has a pic of car lowered 25mm with the 10mm sport chassi....hint hint ;)

Rob, you're God. Thank you. I just hope the winter will be forgiving when the car is this low...

BTW Rob that car looks much lowered than 30mm. How much did you lower it?

aaaahh, ok. I wonder how it handles when turning? By the looks of it, it could rub against the tire arches...

That's forum member Johny M's 3.0 Sport TDI. You can see more pics and read all about his springs mod here.

Thank you very much TXcarguy. but I would still like to see what the difference is like between a 25mm drop and a 35mm drop. As I understand they will be replacing the 10mm drop springs with 25mm spring and does not sound like much to give the effect that everyone has. So if I do the change I will only getting a 15mm drop difference from my original sport chassi.

I think I might just go for the 35mm drop instead.

Ok, I've lowered the car using 35mm springs but I have not gotten and spacers yet, When I do I'll post a pic. BTW, the extra 35mm springs, which actually becomes 25mm lowered, if Audi specs are correct for the sport version, makes a lot of difference. It is not too aggressive like most of the cars on here, but it surely does look good. Like I said, it would be much better with some spacers...
