Yep, actually the H&R Sport springs provide the stiffness and resistance to rolling and the Konis provide dampening for comfort.

I recommend the Variant 2 for RWD cars. No need to buy V3.
V2s adjust for height and firmness, quite easy to do on the fly.
It acts much quicker than stock and mutes any bumps, keeps the car level....

I would throw a tune on the Audi and maybe do the suspension.
Too bad the RS6 isn't available in the US, but I am sure you can get close to that performance and ride with some mods.

You should match springs and shocks so they are working off same height.
If you add sport springs that are lower, you will wear out your shocks very fast.

The warranty would be a good idea. Especially in case you need new turbos over the next 3 years. It comes out to $2 per day. I'd do it.

Consider coil overs. Especially KW V2s. I can hook you up if you are interested.

Else you can do Eibach springs with Bilstein or Koni shocks. It will be firm, but bumpy compared to coil overs.
