    I have just fitted some Rs6 20" wheels to my s-line avant and need to lower another 1". The problem I have had in past with cars that have factory lowered springs is the lowered spring kits just say -40mm from std and can be less on s-line cars. Anyone know of a kit that will give me 25 to 40mm on s-line without going down coilovers route?

    They all give lowering about but have warning about could be less on factory lowered cars. I fitted set to my passat sport a few years ago and rude hight did no change.

    Hi,

    You need to first figure out exactly which suspension setup you have currently. The build sticker in the wheel well of the boot (or inside the service book) will tell you. Look for one of the following codes on the sticker:

    1BA, 1BE or 1BV

    1BA = Dynamic Suspension - standard on SE but an option you could select for S line
    1BE = Sports Suspension (20mm drop) - standard on S line
    1BV = S line Sports Suspension (30mm drop) - a no-cost option you could select when ordering S line cars, but not fitted as standard

    If you currently have 1BA (unlikely but possible) you could get a 20mm or 30mm drop by switching to the 1BE or 1BV components. If you currently have 1BE (which I assume is most likely) the obvious choice is to buy and fit the 1BV springs, shock absorbers and bump stops. If you already have 1BV then you're looking at a non-standard solution.

    Cheers!

    Looks like I have 1BE so should have 20mm lower than std hight. So I just need a spring that gives 45mm lowering ant that will give me the inch I'm looking for.
    Thanks fir help

    I would be a bit more cautious of lowering it too much as the ground clearance is not great on these A6. I have the 1be also and I canít get into my folks driveway which isnít that steep and any lower it will be brushing, or worse, the hump type speed ramps.
