    Hot tuning coilovers

    Seen thes on eBay for Ł170 just wondered if anyone had any thoughts or dealings with these? They come with a 3 year warranty. Little unsure weather to try these or not. What do you guys think?

    I've had them on my mk4 GTI. For what they are they are good. But they are cheap coilovers, so don't expect a smooth ride.
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...

    I had AP coilovers on my V6 4motion, and they were pretty good. I didn't really notice too much difference between them and standard suspension with regards to ride comfort. So they could be worth a shout, and not too expensive. Or Weitecs are good too. All made by KW.

    If fitted coil-overs to pretty much all of my previous cars. Ranging from Weitecs to Hottuning and NONE of them gave a smooth ride. The were all pretty much the same ride quality wise (except the weitecs, they were hard). The main difference i found was the corrosion protection. imho

    I'm going to run hottuning ones when the funds allow.

    Well, I did notice a massive improvement between the rides on both. That said, the hottuning ones were lowered fully at the back, where the AP's weren't. So that could have influenced the ride quite some way.

    I only paid Ł100 for my hottuning though, compared to Ł450 for the AP's. Personally, next time I buy suspension, I'll be going shocks and springs though. Can usually find springs low enough (my H&R's on the A3 are 55mm and are perfect height wise).

    do you need coilovers. Shocks and springs are normally a more suited setup for lowering.
