    I saw them the other day on ebay. Dont worry about what anyone else thinks mate, if you fancy trying them out then go for it and let us know how they are.

    I heard you talking about coilovers on your Nurburgring thread....How about you be the guniea pig for this one :) :)

    Only joking....I dont mind the "ride" as lowering or even moddifing the suspention in any way would make the ride harder...I dont care if the rides hard as long as they will perform ok.
    Do you recon these will be worse then the AP's/Wietec's on cornering?

    You could end up with a car that handles like a bag of nails. Coilovers are usually pretty firm, which in turn makes the car bounce over mid-corner bumps.

    Also, if you read them it clear states there for a 8P! yours is a 8L...so they won't fit anyway!

    Cheapest id go on coilovers is the AP kit mate. Depends what the car is for though really?
    If you just want to slam it and not bothered bout anything else get some hottuning ones.
    Ive personally got the KW V1's they're a bit more money but well worth it IMO.
