Are you looking to lower your 8V A3 or S3, but are concerned with diminished ride quality? Designed with the daily driver in mind, eMMOTION lowering springs by Emmanuele Design will provide the improved aesthetics of a lowered vehicle, without creating the harsh, bouncy ride that is all too common with typical lowering springs.

Taking our experience on the MQB platform, along with testing on our in-house S3 and MK7 GTI, we have developed what we feel is the best lowering spring option for those wishing to utilize factory dampers. Using a linear design (similar to OEM) with unique spring rates, our lowering springs are properly matched to the factory dampers, ensuring a ride quality that is slightly stiffer than stock, but predictable in nature. 

Each spring set is 100% made in the USA exclusively for Emmanuele Design. The springs are made of high tensile chrome silicon and each unit is shot peened, pre-set and 100% tested to ensure all the critical dimensions and rate/loads are within tolerance. The springs are then powder coated with a stealth black finish for an OEM appearance. The use of high tensile chrome silicon, as opposed to typical commercial grade chrome silicon, allows us to create a lighter spring that can sustain repeated deflection without deformation. High tensile chrome silicone will typically have thinner coil diameters that are spaced further apart, when compared to commercial chrome silicon.

 

Specifications for our lowering springs are:

Audi S3 (With Magnetic Ride): Approximately 0.5" Front & Rear 

Audi S3 (Without Magnetic Ride): Approximately 0.75" Front & Rear 

Audi A3 (Without Sport Package): Approximately 1.75" Front & Rear

 

F.A.Qs

Yes, these springs are compatible with magnetic ride control. They pair extremely well with the adjustable dampening, as they maintain the distinct ride characteristics between the different modes.

Are these springs okay for a daily driver?

Yes, these springs were specifically designed for daily driven vehicles. They were designed to maintain the factory ride quality.

Will lowering springs cause my factory shocks and struts to wear out prematurely?

Our springs are a linear rate design, similar to the OEM units. As such, they are not expected to cause additional wear on the shocks and struts. The spring heights are also designed to stay within the travel range of the factory shocks and struts to ensure longevity of the factory components.

Will there be any rubbing with these springs?

With most wheel and tire setups, there will be no rubbing. We typically recommend a 19x8.5 ET35 wheel for a flush fit without rubbing. We have some customers running up to a 19x9 ET40 with a 255 series tire, with little to no reported rubbing.

Do I need to trim the bump stops?

The bump stops do not need to be trimmed on the S3. On the A3, we recommend trimming them 0.5" front and rear.

What do the rear plastic pads do?

Our reverse rake adapter pads offer some adjustability of the body line of the car. For a level body line, we recommend not installing the rear pads. For an even tire to fender gap (and a slight forward rake body line), we recommend installing the rear pads. The pads go on top of the rear rubber pad, against the body.
