    These are absolutly fantastic, never had any problems with these coilovers at all. Also a MUCH smoother ride than FK highsports (2 of my mates use FK's)

    If you do decide to go ahead with them Jarrod did a decent write up/fitting guide which may be of use:

    Im looking for coilovers at the moment for my S3........not sure what to get. Just want some that arent too expensive and dont have a harsh ride quality.

    Was recommended some Weitech's for £620

    Do you have any other recommendations?

    I can recommend AP coilovers, excellent OE like ride quality yet awesome handling if you want to throw it about. I had APS fit them to my old s3 and they confirmed to me that they are made by KW but just rebranded as they are a budget coilover, i have every reason to believe Ed at APS as well as hes honest and trustworthy and a KW approved dealer, plus they're around £200 cheaper than the Weitechs you were recommended.

    As mentioned the AP are also a very good option for the money.

    Give me a shout if you need any advice or prices.
