RE: Advice on Bilsteings for quattros?

Mine's probably a minority opinion, but I prefer the HDs to the Sports. I've
had both on my S4, although the Sports lasted less than a month, before I
decided they were too rough on the local pavements.

The sports are definitely better in terms of maintaining traction, but they
are also significantly harsher on imperfect roads. Still, the HDs are
significantly better in terms of handling than the stock shocks, even though
I am still running with the stock springs.
