    Very nice. Was it difficult to take the adjusters out? No idea what it involves as I had my Weitecs fitted for me.

    How about some pics from behind??

    Maybe I'm perverted and tasteless, but I wouldnt want a reg plate that resembles "loose", especially on a car for my gf/wife/sister/mom/grandma.

    Nice wheels otherwise.

    Alright Scott,it's a 2 minute job removing the adjusters,just jack the car up and unwind,but my mate had some metal inserts made so it held the springs in better,without cutting the adjusters which the springs sit around.
    Sorry can't really explain it very well,not that mechanical ,i leave that to my mates and i just pass them the bits they need.
    I still want it a bit lower,but time will help it settle,if not i might borrow N8's wallet to load the boot up

    Fair enough.

    You must pardon my previous post. I blame the beer...either than, or being an asshole is part of my natural manly essence.

    And oooOOoo....is that white interior in the RS4?

    So by removing the rear adjusters, how low are you now?

    Not sure Smudge,but still not quite enough,i'm defo going to weight the boot a bit to help it settle,
    I think this is defo a flaw with the weitec,s,as the front will go really low,yet the backs not,If i was choossing coilovers again i probably wouldn't buy these,the ride is good,but my mates fk's imo are a slightly better ride and better adjustment,yet most people on here loved to slate the fk's.
    But i'm still pretty happy and it's looking better all the time as it settles

    Hmmm

    Sorry Smudge ,not really got many pics of it yet,i,ll try and sort one.
    Don't get me wrong,they are pretty good,plus with stretched tyres probably doesn't help the ride quality.
    I'm sure 95% of people will be really happy as they don't want to go really low,it's low enough now that in catches on the screws holding the arch liners on all wheels on hard cornering or pot holes.
    I just want the option to go lower for shows etc,as i say my mate and i was really not happy with the rear adjustment.
    Another 10 mm on rears would be spot on.
    My mate who ran fk's on his would defo go lower.
    Depends what you want really mate.

    Cheers Jules

    The KW, Weitec, etc. family make good kit, but they're not known for going particularly low.

    Mine is running V-Maxx and sits pretty low, with probably another 15mm that it could go down on the back still. I can't imagine anybody wanting lower than that would be.
