    A6 Sport - Change suspension or sell?

    Hi, I have a 2004 (53 plate) A6 2.5 diesel Sport saloon. I have had it since May but find the suspension extremely hard and jittery for every day driving. I have read about this on the forums and I know this is a common complaint.

    Has anyone any experience with changing the suspension...namely the dampers for a smoother ride? Koni do a set of FSD dampers which apparently improve the handling and ride comfort but they are 430 plus the fitting.

    Am trying to weigh up whether it is worth a cost of around 800, or just sell the car and get an SE when I can afford it? Any help would be appreciated

    FSDs make a big difference. Shop around, when i did mine 2 years ago Awesome GTI were cheapest by some margin, like nearly 200.

    i know this does not help but if they spent some of the revenue they get from car tax and fuel tax the roads would not resemble a third world countries they are a complete disgrace people need to claim claim claim against there local council if you damage your suspension carry a camera and get evidence to drag these incompitant councils through the courts its the only way to get these jokers to take this problem serously
