The Audi RS 3 is the performance hero of the A3 range. It comes packing a five-cylinder inline turbocharged petrol engine developing 294kW (400hp) of power and 480Nm of torque available between 1,700 and 5,850rpm.
Already equipped with an RS body kit, widened fenders and 19-inch wheels, the RS 3 Sedan looks aggressive and imposing straight out of the factory. But that didn’t stop chassis specialist H&R Suspension from spicing things up just a little further with a set of lowering springs for the sports sedan.
Specially tuned to work with the factory adaptive dampers, the springs lower the RS 3 Sedan by up to 30mm at the front and 25mm in the rear. The subtle drop is enough to set off a properly aggressive stance, eliminating any unsightly gap between the tyres and the wheel arches.
As the spring rates are the same as the factory specifications, the tuner says ride quality is not compromised while handling is improved and roll is reduced in corners. It’s also claimed that all suspension components are German made and have been TÜV tested and certified to guarantee durability and high performance.
For even better stability and sportier stance, H&R can also pump up the sports sedan with a set of wheel spacers with thickness ranging between 16mm to 30mm for that properly flush look with the wheel fenders.
The H&R sport springs for the RS 3 Sedan costs 260 Euros for the front axle and 475 Euros for the rear while the wheel spacer package will set you back a further 72.40 Euros.
