As long as it’s the springs and not the dampeners then you’ll have the full functionality of DRC. Once you remove the dampeners, then you’ll lose that altogether.

Also from previous posts, no fault codes.

Pics of the car would be brill!

I am by no means an expert. I have DRC on my S5. If you are doing coilovers, there are a few that will fit the shocks. KW is one. The KW HAS (height adjustable springs) appear to be well liked and are less than 800.00 USD.

Welcome to the RS5 stable Scuby22. I do love the Daytona Grey. You’ve managed to bag yourself the last of the V8’s there with the 2015 model so look after and enjoy this one.
What’s its history? Why was it in the stealers for two weeks? What’s your plans for it?

Did Preston Audi get the suspension issue resolved? Does your RS have the Dynamic suspension?
What’s your plans for this project car?

Will be interesting to hear what the issue is with your suspension and what’s done to fix it. Keep us updated. Your plans sound good by the way.
