         My car in Thailand has rear anti-roll bar and stiff ride,so mine
is Americanized suspension,right ?

          My experience with Eibach & ABT sus. is opposite with you,
I install ABT sport sus. into my VW Eurovan (ABT uses SACH shockabsorbers)
,the ride is very very stiff,now I use stock springs + SACHs.
	  For S4 I installed Eibach + Koni Sport (yellow) ,the car looks great
,but very stiff ride too,even adjust 1/2 turn at the shockabsorbers,another
problem (for Thailand only) is with lower height,the lowest the ground 
clearance is about 3 inches,the underbody hit the road many times.

          What does "German RS2" means ? It is from German company ?
it should has new camshaft + big IC as the real RS2 to complete RS2 setup.
	Could you please tell me more details about Audi Sport USA,and
S4 sport kit from Ned ,I'm really want my car >300 hp.
