Yeah, I kind of like it how it is for the tight Auto-xs we run up here. The S52 may start to cause a bit more issues as far as traction and such goes. It would be perfect for the High Speed stuff.

Do you intend on running as often this year good sir? I am going to make it a point to get to Black hawk atleast once this year.

So I made a purchase last night. I decided to get a set of coilovers for the S4 to replace the blown shocks/H&R setup I have now. They should be here tomorrow. I was debating yesterday about just selling this car and finding something else like a 4dr e30, but I figure that I'll have a heck of a time selling it. No one is going to buy a twin turbo, AWD audi with 170k on it..lol! So, might as well fix the issues that bother me and ride it out for a awhile.

Pics when they arrive!

The complete kit was $724 shipped next day air... I love this Amazon Prime thing.... 3.99 for next day air... cant complain with that!
As for rates, I believe they are in the 500f/450R neighborhood.

Because the reviews I found on it were... well less than what I felt comfortable. I found review talking about the bottom halves snapping, springs sagging, shocks blowing out... but what more can you expect for $300 coilovers.
