air ride is something VW's and Audi's do. they love to slam there cars as low as they can and air ride is the best option cus you can raise it to get over high bumps and driveways.
He's gonna have to get some new tires and stretch em to get that audi real low.

Cool man. There is a common misconception that air ride suspension doesn't handle well.
Your going to love it man. You are going to love hittin' those switches around town.
