    Suspension upgrade

    The original standard suspension on my 1.9tdi 130 fwd is well past it. Too much pitching and rolling and it sits too high. I can't afford to, nor want to spend a fortune on this. A mate of mine had a 130 sport fwd avant and the handling was epic. I realise we get what we pay for in this life but any opinions on the set up from dpm below would be appreciated.

    Thanks for that, how much were the coilovers? Having read some previous posts it sounds like some of the cheaper coilovers can be a bit clunky with constant knocking. I think I'll contact DPM and see what feedback they've received. I've seen a chap called Damien posting comments on other threads, is he the main man at DPM?

    Thanks Damian,

    Does the AP kit come with any fittings (new bolts etc) or are they available as a separate package.

    Many thanks, Mark.

    I got them for £200 off the eBay. I have had them fitted for about 2/3 months and had no issues with them at all
