    recommend me some coilovers please!

    I have joms fitted.they are all rusted up and I have replaced both front shocks let that a year ago,now its started leaking again! I'm really peed with these and I won't be getting replacement shocks for it to break again.I'm starting to do trackdays now,so I want something that is good for road and track. Any ideas?
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    AP Coilovers are good quality and a decent price, I and a few others on here are using them. They're good on the road, I've not used them on track yet but I'd put my money on them being good for it.

    Another vote here for AP coilovers....I've had them on for over 6 months now.
    Not used them on a track yet but I have used them for fast road use and they have coped very well with 100mile runs a time.

    AP coilovers are going to be your best option within your budget, made by KW as well so the quality is excellent.
