    I have a Baileys DV30, i got this because i didn't want to mess around with different coloured springs.
    Many members here use the Forge items and don't have many issues, i'd say they were both decent DV's

    There's not much in price difference bud, think the Forge are a little cheaper infact.
    Make sure you get the Bailey DV30 if you do end up going for Bailey, DV26 isn't advisable as its not a re-circulating DV

    Yeah, the fitting on mine was perfect, can't go wrong really, very easy to fit, what colour did you go for?

    It will be quiet because it's a recirc valve not a dump valve..... i was also led to beleive there are no performance gains to be had over the standard valve..... the only advantage being reliability ... is this true ???

    why dont you guys use the 710n valve? its what the s4 types bang on about all the time and it only costs 23 a go

    considering the OE one lasts 100k miles or so, if you have a relatively standard engine you can get four replacements for the cost of the forge...

    I've got a baileys recirc valve, only cost me 50 from a friend. Can hear it from inside the car, not sure if it can be heard from the outside but it's pretty loud so I think it can.
