    Coilovers, Any Recomendations?

    Guys,

    Planning for the near future, was running rs4 alloys for winter but got a offer i couldnt refuse on them so sold them and back running on my bentleys, but i want to lower it now as the arch gap is starting to annoy me!

    So what coilovers are you running?

    Seen kits on ebay starting at £170 - £800+

    Would rather spend a bit more for better quality and ride ect

    Ta

    I'm using FK Konigsport coilovers, they have been very good, no complains so far. I have the damping set to fully soft at the moment (wife and kids) and its still better then the stock sline ride. The actual dampers are made by Koni so you know your buying pukka equipment.

    A lot is down to your budget and what you're willing to spend.

    As mentioned the AP kits are a good option for the money.

    If I can be any help with info or prices just let me know.

    The AP kit seems to get a good review, and thats seems a good price. Think the JOM kit was around the £400 mark also, but it was a while back.

    I would personally go for Weitec. Owned by KW.
    Excellent quality and still good prices.
    Used them on my focus and was really impressed.
