I don't have a tape measure with me at the mo and its chucking it down!!

One thing to consider though is to lower the rear by 5mm more than the front to level the car out.

Sorry cant help with the question at-hand but I would suggest you get a Dieselgeek skid plate if youre concerned about hitting the sump anymore.

My front and rear are the same ride height - I measured to the inside of the arch and they were 32.5 cm. Handles perfectly on V3s.

for better handling shouldnt the front be slightly lower than the rear though?
I did have the front set lower - but it was grounding everywhere - have a look here.

Looks perfect now - and handles well.

just measured. 33 front 31.5 rear. no the rear is only lower because i raised the front at the weekend. just waiting for my kw tie bars to come before i raise the rear. ive heard that a sump off an audi 3.2 v6 is shallower than the r32 one and also baffled ;)

i look into it more
