Default suspension options?

08 Sline A3; 18" TT wheels.

thinking of lowering the car a bit and wondering if others have had success with 18" wheels. i had to go with 10mm spacers to keep them from rubbing, so not sure if lowering is even possible. would love to hear from others on what setups they've used successfully, coilovers or not.

Default Same problem

Just outta curiosity, did your tires scrape over every little bump? I have the same problem, ditched the 17, got some VW CC 18 and over every bump, they just scrape. Could bad shocks cause this problem as well?

if i hit a good sized bump i hear a bit of rubbing in the pass rear...otherwise no.

could be fixed with suspension. or you could cut out the fender liner since that is what it's probably rubbing against.
