    AP Coilovers.. any reviews?

    Hi guys,

    has anyone used AP coilovers? I've seen them on DPM and was wondering what peoples thoughts are on them?

    http://www.dpmperformance.co.uk/ap-c...03-p-5075.html

    Also, has anyone had coilovers fitted by a garage? because id like to know what sort of price I'd be looking at for fitting if i was to get some coilovers?

    Thanks

    ive just got them and fittin them on saturday so will write my thought on them with pics at some point over the weekend or early next week, the supplyer who i got them off said there exactly the same as the weitec gts, just have a diffrent coating on them, and a smaler price tag but will give my honest opinoin on them once fitted and tested.

    cheers chris

    A good choice and a lot better then FK's in my opinion.

    You'll be looking at around 150 to get them fitted.

    I have been using Ap's now for a couple of months and have had no problems at all.

    Great for the money but is quite a firm ride.

    I have AP fitted and for the price they are not that bad. The ride from KW is better though and they will go lower, but its all extra £'s.

    I would get someone else to fit them personally, unless you have access to a ramp and all the right tools as it makes things a lot easier.

    I've got them on my A3 and I think they're brilliant for the price.

    Also, if you do go for a set, speak to Damian at DPM Performance on here. I got mine from him and the service was fantastic!
