    V Maxx plus coilovers. Opinions?

    After the nightmare I've just had with the JOMs, I've bitten the bullet and ordered some V Maxx plus coilovers to replace them.

    Anyone on here running them or have come across them?

    Can't wait to get them on and start enjoying the car again, the past few weeks haven't been fun, hours spent in garages and going through money like water!

    I know modding isn't ever plain sailing but I'd almost had enough!

    Nate took me for a drive in his mates A4 running them on 19s with stretch and I was impressed at how smooth they were, we took them down some pretty rough streets and can't honestly say I found them uncomfortable at any point, a huge improvement over the standard setup

    Cheers Fran, think mine are ET54 but I got 10mm (front) and 15mm(back) spacers.

    Had to take the 2 screws out of the back arch liners though.

    @N8 cheers for that, got a great deal from DPM though, with me returning the JOMs.

    I reckon the JOMs arn't bad. But I think the 3.2, with occupants, is too heavy for them.

    Cheapest I've seen so far is £372 for V-maxx coilovers.

    Thinking of going for them.
