    Morning,

    The best way to check and be sure is to either ring your local dealership with your registration and ask them to check on the system or put your wheels on full lock and measure it.

    We can do the V-Maxx for 400.00 all in delivered for you.

    No problem.

    That price is also a price beat quote if you manage to find them cheaper.

    hey guys i am thinking of getting v maxx collies aswell, what is the ride like compared with the s line suspension set up is there a major difference? I dont want to loose to much on the ride comfort and dont want the dash to be rattling after a week

    I have just bought an A3 tdi quattro 170 s line, the plan is a set of bbs ch wheels, some coil overs, black grill, leona lewis splitter and some yellow fogs (the car is dark grey)

    Afternoon,

    The V-Maxx coilovers are one of the more comfortable options available so with the S-Line having quite stiff suspension as standard, as long as you don't go too low on them then it shouldn't be too much stiffer.

    hi mate i need some pointers , ive recently fitted v-maxx coilies like i said i was going to and now i have a knocknig from the rear suspension area nothing is loose checked everything is tight top mounts are all tight no movement in them at all the only thing i have noticed is that when i took the spring out to have a look at them today that the adjusters are very loose on the threads could this be where the noise is coming from when the adjusters are moving under load it sounds like metal on metal you see im going to wind them all the way so its as low as it can go tomorow so they are tight shut to see if this shuts it up , have you come across this before with coilovers or v-maxx in particular any help much appriciated mate
    cheers

    Morning,

    Do you have your order number and I can bring up the details of the kit and have a look into what it could be?

    hi damian i didnt order the kit from you unfortunatly ive now found out what was wrong i put the standard rear shocks back on and now there isnt a single noise from the rear , what do you think that cound mean new shocks are buggered or too much movement in the top mount caused by the new shock being very slightly smaller than the oem shock as ive been advised that it could be the problem as my mate has come across that before
    cheers
