    Ive looked into this mate and I think you have to buy the TT variant, apparently it will still fit, Ive found one on Awesomes site. Hope this helps

    Thanks, so were talking 400 front and rear?! Doing the suspension is so expensive!

    i have the springs all set to go. But iv done my homework, i dont do things by halves so iv worked out i would need B8 dampers, full set of ARBs, rear adjustable tie bars, new front top strut plate, bearing, top mounts. Then a four wheel alignment. Is there anything i have missed? Very expensive but i bet its worth it, still toying with the idea if im honest! Lol

    Fit the Golf R32 ARB's...cheaper and supposedly as good as any. Another easy mod: Dog bone mount. Makes a huge difference to the gearchange and overall stiffness of 'box mount. Otherwise you mapped all the good parts

    Would you recommend a powerflex dog bone mount? Is this a straight forward job? Cheers

    I'll definately recommend the Power flex bushing. A little too stiff (some vibrations up through the powerline in to the car) initially but after just 1000 miles it's beginning to loose up a little. Actually I don't know if I just got used to it or the bushing really did softened up a little...

    But still the positive side outweighs that little detail hehe...
