    Get what you pay for??

    Anyone tried these?

    Look at this on eBay:

    AUDI A3 SPORTBACK 8P COILOVER ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION KIT ( 50 or 55mm strut size)

    I think the title of your thread says it all.

    You DO get what you pay for with suspension,and if you buy cheap,then you get the results of that....it's far better to either save and buy better,or simply pay out in the first place.


    A useful thread here..... Definitive suspension thread required!!

    I'm tempted, I'm not after anything performance wise, just looking for a nice stance if I'm honest, will let you know what they are like

    2 yr warranty though, so someone must have faith in them.

    Look like JOM's to be fair. Many people on here use them. Myself included. No problems whatsoever on my car. Ride isn't crashy either. I paid £180 for mine from DPM performance.

    I find it a little weird that they try their best throughout the whole listing to avoid actually saying what make they are.

    Buy cheap, buy twice IMO.

    But if you were going for cheap coilovers, go for JOM's rather than them. At least they've been tried and tested by people and if you Google you'll find a lot of opinions and reviews.
