    Are any of you guys running 19's whilst still on standard S line suspension ? If so can you post some pictures.

    Thanks

    You'll need to replace the suspension as it's very classy, and still have loads of arch gap.

    That's hat I was looking to see really, I don't want to make the ride any harsher by going down the cool over route, so was looking to see how big a gap there would be.

    How does the air suspension handle bumps ? Is it a firm ride compared to standard suspension set up ?

    Cheers

    You will IMPROVE the ride going down the coilover route, hence why I recommended it. Air ride is like driving on silk.

    Ok thanks for your input. Is there a tried and tested route that you would recommend ? I don't mind if the ride feels the same or softer but any harder and I won't be able to deal with it.

    I can sell you V-Maxx coilovers, they offer a great ride and are well priced. All depends on what you want to spend, I would avoid cheap nasty coilovers like JOM's, go for AP/FK/V-Maxx etc, or if you want to spend big dollars then H&R or KW.

    Pm me a price please. I'm not really interested in cheap junk but at the same time, I'm no millionaire. I just want to have the car sitting nice and level whilst still retaining the relative comfort that the standard suspension brings.

    The last time a fitted coilovers to my previous cars it ruined the ride, so seeing as I don't want a track car that's what's got me worried.

    Thanks again

    I too would be interested in a pic on 19's with standard suspension.

    Look at a Q7 and it's not far off that ;)

    Here is mine on 19" ch-r's on standard s line suspension.

    Not quite a Q7 but there is quite a gap.

    Ride has been completely ruined, but that said I am running on the lowest setting.
