    i need to buy some coilovers for my 04 plate a4 b6 cabriolet but i cant seem to find many for sale i was looking along the lines of fk konigsport or highsports but can only find the fk ak ones but they look too cheap.

    any help appreciated.

    iam looking to spend around £500 pounds and ive had konigsports on a few of my cars in the past and never had any problems.

    Well been waiting to get some funds for coilovers as I need my wheels on I've decided about £650 is what I'll be spending and I would like to know people's thoughts regarding

    fk kongsport or weitec hicon gt coilovers I want to keep a fairly comfy ride but need to be able to lower car enough to make the car sit right with the wheels.

    I've tried Spax and FK before. Never liked them.
    KW is deffo the way to go. Never scrimp on coilovers.

    I've had konig sports on couple of cars and liked them and never had prob. The kw before the price aim looking at around £650 they are not damping adjustable so worried they might be too stiff. ??

    After a couple of sets of eBay specials on Golfs my mantra now is spend as much as you can possibly afford, at the expensive of any other mod. Went from £160 quid cheapos to £500 FKs and Inox KWs and never looked back.

    Well coilovers are on just need to set them up on a good day.

    Rear needs to go lower as too high.

    Well I sold the Porsche wheels as thought they were too small and decided after allot of thinking to go 19"

    These are one of my fav wheels and love them on my car even more now.
