    Yes since you can still lower the height of the Magnetic Ride suspension.

    I just had a set of 034 Motorsport's Dynamic + lowering springs installed in my '16 S3 with magnetic ride, as well as their rear sway bar. The car rides perfectly now. The mag ride works perfectly, no codes, no rattles, no issues. The car came down about 1/2" which is fine with me. It may settle about 1/4" more, but if not, I am good where it sits now. The rear sway bar made a big difference too. I had it set on the softer of the two adjustable positions and I also used the stock end links. The guys at 034 Motorsports in Fremont were all terrific and took excellent care of my car. I wanted to lower my car a little and firm it up a little and keep it flatter in the turns with better turn-in response - goal accomplished.

    I would say the rear firmed up a tiny bit and is now much flatter in turns and noticable on turn-in. This is my DD so I did not want it harsh. I think 034 nailed it. My brother just bought a '17 SQ5 and he is going to take it into 034 for some work in about 6 weeks. He wants to lower it 2".
