Default SQ5 euro ride height/TFSI engine parts question

Until I saw this thread (https://www.audiworld.com/forums/sho....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
