    Coilovers Fitted! (pic heavy)

    Got round to fitting my new JOM coilovers from DPM, had a slight issue with the rear adjustable perch damaged in transit, but the lads at DPM provided me with a replacement part.

    Early saturday morning, I set off down to my mates unit to use his ramps and air tools, making the job hell of a lot easier!

    Anyways, here is a few pics of the progress














    All kind of set up we got the car off the ramps to test drive around the block



    Left the centre caps of because the wheels would be coming off when I got the car to my house,

    Rolling shot on M1,



    Right, here is the final pics!












    To be honest im thinking about raising the front abit it might be a tad too low on the front, seams to have settled quite a bit more in the last few days, so its a bit lower now than in these photos lol.

    Also think a slight bit of trimming of the inner arches is required, get a bit of scraping with people in the back, but thats all for some fine tuning this week, if the weather holds up!

    Comments welcome lads,

    Would you say the ride has improved overall even with the increased drop compared to the standard S-line suspension??

    The ride is very good, feels nice and solid but not too harsh.

    Manages well on the bumpier roads round were I live so all in all its going well, scrapes a bit on the rear with people in so need to look at the inner arch liners then a can give it some stick and get a real feel for the new handling potential

    Stance looks great on those rimz mate. Maybe lower the back to match the front instead of the other way round

    Cheers lad, am well happy with the out come, if I dont raise the front I think ill just have to do something about the one sh*t guard bolt that it rubs on.

    I reckon you go the whole hog and get RS4 mirrors. They look so aggressive and will tie in. haha dont blame you mate, enjoy magaluf when you go

    How do you find the ride compared to the stock suspension? I want to lower my SE but can't just get lowering springs because my shocks have covered too much mileage

    That looks amazing and my favourite colour.

    I would look at the JOMs as a short term fix however. I had them on my golf tdi they didnt last long. Save up for a quality pair for next year?

    Thanks for all the positive comments lads, lifted the car yesterday and removed the arch liner bolt on the front wings and tucked the arch liner back in place that stopped the scraping, ideally the front needs to go up a few mm not much to notice tho, trimmed out the rear arch liners so everything is running mint :D

    The rs4 mirrors are mint but rare as owt, only seen one pair on ebay in like for ever and they went for silly money

    Both front struts leaked after about 6 months. It could have been a one off.

    Any reason why your changing to the other sizes? Glad to hear the Joms are decent, I was looking at APs but these look spot on for the price!

    Yeh wound all way down on the back, one of other guys I know with an audi didnt have his is, but I went with it in so could still adjust

    Not really pal, only to give it more of a stretch look if im honest, its running perfectly fine with the 235's since ive had bentley's. Yeh cant fault the JOM's atm pal
