[s-cars] Website claims to have Eibachs for S4/S6

3 months ago, the Eibach German site listed part number
EW 1527001 VA for the front springs of all 100/A6/S4/S6
Pro-Kits with 5/6cyl., air, and manual tranny.
Now they list EW 1515001 VA front springs for these same
applications, and only those with automatic are listed with
EW 1527001 VA. At least the kit numbers and rear spring
numbers appear to be the same as before.

Since this UK supplier seems to have the full range of
Pro-Kits listed on the German Eibach site (including
Avant-specific kits), it may be best to go with the kit
number that both they and www.eibach.de show for the
S6 Avant without automatic: Pro-Kit 1521.140.
This has EW 1521002 HA rear springs.
Or, you could go for 1530.140 (including automatic) if
you want to get the EW 1527001 VA front springs.
It's all as clear as mud ;-(
