The ST XTA plus 3 coilover suspension kit with adjustable low-speed and high-speed compression forces and independent adjustable low-speed rebound forces getting more and more popular for road-legal cars.The kit features tunable support bearings and racing springs. Now we adapted the ST XTA plus 3 for the Audi RS3 (8V) – which gives your Audi the ultimate performance stance.
According to the parts report, the adjustable lowering is 15 to 35 millimeters on both axles on the RS3 (8V), which is roughly equivalent to 40 to 60 millimeters lowering of a 2.0 TDI quattro sedan. An RS3 is already lower ex-works than other Audi A3 models. But the ST XTA plus 3 gives all automotive enthusiasts much more as a maximum drop.
Like every coilover suspension from ST suspensions, the ST XTA plus 3 is also customizable through our so-called “Make-it-Yours” program; and we are not even talking about the adjustable damper setups!
It doesn’t matter if you visit one of our dealers or if you order an ST coilover suspension directly from our online store, you always have the option to order the mainspring in an individual color and to label it with a catchphrase as well.
After receiving your order, all our springs will be powder-coated in one of the 18 RAL colors you ordered for your kit. Then the marking is attached and optionally a personal phrase such as #alleseingetragen.
Optional colors are Luminous Yellow (RAL 1026), Pearl Gold (RAL 1036), Pastel Orange (RAL 2003), Luminous Orange (RAL 2005), Ruby Red (RAL 3003), Traffic Red (RAL 3020), Signal Violet (RAL 4008), Telemagenta (RAL 4010), Ultramarine Blue (RAL 5002), Light Blue (RAL 5012), Water Blue (RAL 5021), Yellow Green (RAL 6018), Mint Green (RAL 6029), Light Grey (RAL 7035), Signal White (RAL 9003), Jet Black (RAL 9005) and Grey Aluminium (RAL 9007).
More freedom for your tuning
You have the option of perfecting the preset and recommended damper setup of your ST XTA plus 3 coilover suspension. You can independently adjust the compression forces in the low-speed and high-speed range. It does not mean how fast you drive with your car; it means how fast the piston rod moves.
Each of the low-speed and high-speed compression stages is adjustable with 24 clicks. The black wheel changes the spring preload of the high-speed compression valve. Via the golden wheel, the low-speed needle valve is dialed.
The compression adjustment wheels are located directly at the bottom of the strut housing or on the side of the damper housing. The rebound damping is adjusted at the top of the piston rod, as with the ST XTA or ST XA coilover suspension. There are 16 click stages adjustable.
With its three-way adjustable dampers, the ST XTA plus 3 coilover suspension ensures outstanding road-holding in everyday driving. Just a few clicks give the RS3 a more dynamic or comfortable ride – depending on the individual setting.
Increased residual ride comfort, less body roll, and more direct handling are what the ST XTA plus 3 gives the Audi RS3. The multi-valve dampers simply sweep away the typical country road bumps and transverse joints. The XTA plus 3 coilover suspension is also available for all other Audi A3s in the 8V series and not just for the Audi RS3.
