Post by: bedrmninja on August 01, 2017, 10:31:47 pm
Can anyone recommend suspension kit for 09 S3 8P sportback?

not sure if I wanna go for coilovers, thinking more spring/shock kit.

I don't know if they have bolt on kits, but I have had very good service from Centreline Suspension on Great North Rd, worth having a chat with them

Or buy a set of shocks and a set of springs separately..


Then you can customise further

NZ customs are getting quite tricky with private imports these days. I was stung couple of times on two different occasion past months.

thanks for the recommendation!

When you say they are getting tricky? Do you mean that they did not believe that the brand new <insert expensive item here> was worth less than $400, so they got the real value of it and charged you GST on it?

What would you like to know and what are you truly after?

I have now installed multiple configurations in the 8P S3.
Best combo to date was STX XTA coil overs + ST Swaybars.

Rides about 100% smoother and nicer than stock.

likewise, however unless they've moved, they are no longer in business. Their old building is now hyper ride. Anyone know where Chris is now?

How much did that set you back?

Also where did you purchase them and got installed?

Thanks in advance

No imean anything $400 nzd incur import duty, custom handling fee and GST on top of that. Years back it used to be a lot easier to grt away from importing goods that are way over $400. Now they have tightened up screening which will result in paying duty and other fees.

This looks very reasonable for a set. With 30mm drop as well
