    Im about to order some coilovers but I need to specify if I have 50mm or 55 mm on the front damper?

    I was like Ok, it should be written on the white label I can slightly see through the wheel. Then I see I cant get the bolts off with the OEM equipment cause I have the BBS LM so I went to VW/AUDi to ask how to check if I have 50mm or 55mm, he said something about taking the whole shock off and measure.

    Anyway, does it say on the white label?

    In my opinion, i think the lower it is the nicer it looks but its all down to you personally, there wont be THAT much difference between the two anyway.

    55 for me though lol

    What engine do you have?

    You dealership should be able to tell you if you give them your reg.
