    i have v-maxx on my 1.8tfsi sportback , found them hard at first, but now they have settled in they are really good. I drive back from work on a friday 3-4 hours and don't find them uncomfortable. they are not the dampening adjustable ones. awesome round the bends too !

    how about you give us your reasons for looking at the vmaxx

    considering ap's are a favourite forum wide on here, the sensible thing to do would be to have ap's.

    however, id be interested to know your reasons for considering the vmaxx

    I had VMAXX on, very good coilovers. Have now got £185 JOM ones and i am just as happy. Cheap and cheerfull and with a 2year warrenty if they fook up after 2years i will simply bin them and buy another set.

    Dont want to kick up a fuss, but do you intend to track your car? if not i cannot understand what you would gain from adjustable dampning.

    kwl kwl, i would advise replacing top mounts and bearings whilst the legs are out aswell, depending on age/milage

    i just dont wont to make wrong decition as it alot of money at the end of the day ,i mean i could go cheap and get jom's but i been told that the ride comfort and handling just goes crap , i mean jom's are 157 pounds and ap's are 500 must be a massive difference in ride quality (by the i have never boart coilovers befor thats why all the questions)
