Default SQ5 euro ride height/TFSI engine parts question

Until I saw this thread (http://forums.audiworld.com/showthread.php?t=2863780) I didn't know there were countries where the SQ5 is configured with the TFSI engine, but Euro ride height.

I love my SQ5 after a week, but the US ride height/wheel gap just looks wrong and it bothers me every time I look at it. Was thinking about KW lowering springs but can't get any feedback on ride quality.

Anybody have any intel on how to get my hands the right parts to replicate that suspension setup in the US (i.e. Euro ride height, but proper spring rates for TFSI weight distro)?

This is what I'm trying to figure out before ordering the wrong parts. I have to believe that the TFSI w/EU ride height would have different spring rates since the engine is ~150lbs lighter than the TDI. Can't seem to find any supporting info though...

Where did you find this information: TFSI engine is 150 lbs(68kg) lighter than the TDI ?
How many can remember the difference between TFSI and TDI is only 10-15kg

Not understand what what you are actually want ? The list and explanation of each part or what?
I did not made ​​this list of parts, just printed from program
For SQ5 there are only two models of the front springs, one for NA - 2MT and one for the rest of the world - 1BD

The PDF for SQ5 front lists 3 different springs.

8R0 411 105 DG PR-0JB+1BD
8R0 411 105 BA PR-0JB+2MT
8R0 411 105 DF PR-0JA

Fist one is for EU and rest of World.
Second one is for North America.
The last one is for what?

All this had me a doubting so I went back into the shop and measured the SQ5 and TDI they have in. There is approx 2.5cm difference between the two. So definately a TFSI with Euro ride height...

kw springs are great, maybe a little stiffer, I dropped mine 2 inches and put an alu kruez on. Now the truck actually handles pretty well. Just waiting for some eurocode goodies to be developed . Some sways would be great

Thanks for chiming in. The KW's are another option I'm considering, but am really concerned about loss of ride quality given how good stock is (I live in Boston and the roads are garbage, but stock ride handles it well). How noticeable was the change in ride quality on broken pavement?

For SQ5 EU you need Model: 1BD
spijun, Would it be possible for you to generate the other PDF that are somehow related to suspension (Like, supension arms, tie-rod). I would like to make sure that no other parts are different between the EU and NA SQ5.

Or maybe you could seach for 1BD in ETKA and easelly find all related parts?

Many thanks!

There is no difference for the suspension arms and similarly on models CGQB (TDI) and CTXA, CTUD (TFSI)

FYI: 1BD applies only to the shock absorbers and springs

SQ front suspension
