    Coilovers on the way :)

    After the cock up a couple of weeks ago with the top mounts on the A3 (passenger side top thread split) I (with help from wonga lol) ordered a set of JOM Coilovers from Damien at dpm performance.

    So the topmount replacement cost £192 in total lol (instead of £27 for the mounts n bearings)

    They are due on monday and I feel like a child waiting for a new toy, plus I will get to change the passenger side topmount at last.

    With the mot coming up on the 22nd I just wanted to get a few lill bits done and topmounts was one of them. Hopefully it will get through everythin else, but only time will tell.

    I know Jom are budget but I have heard some good reviews (and bad). And for the cost it beats buying original new! Which is a brilliant excuse to tell our lass lol.

    Anyway I will Keep you updated on the progress n take some piccys
    Ill try stuff out! If you never try and never fail, you will never know and never learn.

    i hate to spoil the party for you.
    i have JOM coilovers on my car and i i dont like them at all.
    its ok for the looks but the handling is rubbish with too much
    body roll than the standard sport shocks i had on the car from new.
    with JOM you cant chuck the car about. the ride is too soft.
    the car feels more like a skip.
    try chuking the car into a corner and might find yourself in a ditch.
    im gonna get rid of them and go for the Bilstien B12 kit with he Eibach sportline springs instead.
