      Hi Damian Im considering getting some coilovers been advised by AMD Essex to go the bilstein route and to just get the b14s as KWs customer service is poor. but i was also wondering about the B16 ride control set as well what are they like?

      thanks James

      Morning, I'd say the AP kit gives a slightly better ride quality where as the Vogtland kit has a slightly better build quality.

      You'll need to discuss that with who you purchased the kit from or KW them selves.

      The AP, ST by KW and KW all have the same lowering range.

      I'd go for the ST between the AP and ST kits.

      Afternoon,

      I guess weather or not they go low enough is really down to personal opinion.

      How low are you looking to go?

      Very similar in terms of comfort but I'd say the ST kit will give a more refined ride.

      If you were running the Sportlines on standard springs then I'd say yes.

      Damian @ DPM Performance

      Wich one is more comfortable?do you think they will be better than eibach sportline?both st and ap.??Thank you!!

      Afternoon,

      Thanks for your question.

      Both kits are made by KW in Germany with the ST X being the next level up in terms of build quality and materials used. If your budget allows then I'd say definitely go for the ST X kit as the step up in quality is noticeable but saying that the AP kit is still an excellent choice for the money.

      It will fit but the spring rates will be incorrect for the car.

      No, you'll just need to use your existing top mounts and bearings.

      Afternoon,

      The JOM kit will give you a better ride quality where as the FK AK Street has a slightly better build quality, both very similar kits though.

      Hi,

      Im looking for a set of budget coilovers for a 2007 a3 2.0tdi and was wondering which ones you would recommend. Looking to drop around 50-60mm.

      Thanks.
    26. DPM

      Ok well ideally you need 32mm but we only have them available in 30mm or 35mm so you can have them slightly shorter or get the 35mm and cut them down.

      A pack of 10 delivered is £29.95.

      Morning,

      What size do you think would be best? And im not sure if i need radius or tappered. I dont know what you mean? I guess which ever is the same as the standard nuts just longer by 5mm? Or are things more technical than that?

      Cheers

      Morning,

      The closest sizes we have available for 5mm spacers would be either 30mm or 35mm.

      Do you need radius or tapered?

      Afternoon,

      Generally the more you spend the better quality kit you'll get.

      For the money the JOM's are a good option and offer quite a comfortable ride compared to some, I'd say the V-Maxx were the next step up in terms of build quality and you'd also get a more refined ride with them as well.

      Hi,


      I got your email from the audi sport net website. I've got an A3 2.0 tdi 2003 8P and I'm wanting to lower it. There's loads of conflicting info on the forum so thought I'd ask your opinion on the best road to go down, either coilovers or springs.


      I've had SPAX RSX coilovers before on a corsa and they were far too stiff and cost a small fortune. I was looking at 50mm H&R springs but they don't look to low on my car and im concerned about blowing my shocks as they have already covered 100,000 miles. Was looking at JOM's or possibly Vmaxx at a stretch but I'm concerned about them not lasting and giving a really harsh un-Audi-like ride.


      Could you please advise


      Thanks

      Morning,

      You'll get a better ride quality if you change both the springs and shocks.

      It will get stiffer but it won't be greatly different to the standard ride.

      Hi I want to get lowering springs for my s3 8p Which has done 45000 so i was wondering if it would be better to get the H&R cup kit rather than just the springs what would you recommend. also i know it will make it stiffer but will it change the ride comfort much compared to standard.
      Thanks James

      Morning,

      It depends how low you go.

      No the kit doesn't come with drop links.

      The kit has an adaptor to cover both 50mm and 55mm.

      Thanks for the reply! I know what you mean now! Also you have to change the drop links aswell don't you? Or I've been told its best to! Do these coilovers come with the drop links or are they extra? And it says these are for a 50 or 55mm does that mean they are universal or do you have to select the size when purchasing?
      Thanks again

      Morning,

      It's the diameter of the shock where it goes into the hub.

      It could be either so always best to check but we do have the JOM kit that covers both the 50mm and 55mm struts - JOM Coilover Suspension Kit A3 8P 1.9TDi DSG, 2.0T FSi DSG, 2.0TDi, 2.0TDi DSG FWD 05/03> - £180.00 : The premier online mail order VAG suspension and performance specialists.
