Air Lift Performance Mk1 Audi S3 (99-03) Slam Series air suspension kit

Performance, practicality and German reliability – what’s not to love about the Mk1 Audi S3? Its 1.8-turbo engine delivers 225bhp through all four wheels and early examples can be had for very little money. Combine this with our latest Slam Series Performance air suspension and the result is a show worthy car without sacrificing usability.

IMG_93051-711x1024Put simply, coilover suspension cannot compete with the versatility of Air Lift. This kit will get you lower than any coil suspension while still providing crisp handling and a smooth ride thanks to the use of double bellow air springs all round. Once fitted, the Mk1 Audi S3 can be lowered (from stock height) up to 5.8-inches on the front axle and 4.8-inches on the rear. In order to achieve the lowest drop possible, the Air Lift Performance bags compress to an amazingly slim 2.3-inches allowing even the biggest wheels to tuck hard (providing they clear the fenders).

Often the journey is as exciting as the outcome, and with an outcome as good as this… we were itching to find out more!

This particular build came to Kyle at KD Designs with the brief of a simple engine bay clean up, but part way through the original owner lost focus with the build. So Kyle kept the dream alive by purchasing the red MK4 1.8T from him. From then on it was full steam ahead to show just what the Rhode Island firm could do.

One of the most comprehensive Mk1 builds right now belongs to Zac Miles @ Forge Motorsport in the UK. Purchased from eBay for a mere £401 it’s safe to say the Golf needed more than just a quick clean! Rust had taken over various panels, every arch was loaded with filler and worst of all it had been re-painted in orange. Nice. Continue reading “BUILD: Forge Motorsport air-equipped VW Golf Mk1” »
