6. The cost of shipping this kit to the UK is extremely high, is there any options?
Absolutely. After paying by bank transfer, we can ship your kit through UPS to a ship forwarding company of your choosing in the US. They would then take it from there and ship it to you. Arrangements with the forwarding company would be your responsibility.
7. How long does it take to install the Audi A8 Air Suspension Conversion Kit?
You should figure between 4-5 hours times the shop's labor rate, but this can vary greatly depending on the shop.
8. Why does it say "spring and strut color may vary"?
Due to occasional rush orders, some of the batches of springs we get from Eibach are not powder coated, therefore they may be black in color rather than red.
9. Will the car sits lower than it did with the air?
No, all of our kits are designed to be at regular factory ride height. If your vehicle has adjustable settings, the height should be in the middle.
