    What would you reccomend, used coillies at least on 5 different cars, but never used airride, infact i dont know where you get it from and whats involved in installing it, can any one give me the heads up?

    Thanks

    What style are you wanting to achieve with your car? are you wanting the whole euro look??

    Are you wanting improved handling/looks?

    If you want the slammed, euro look, then air ride it but it will cost the guts of £1600+

    IMO I do not see the point unless you are totally into that scene - check out TD's thread down the main page and look at his air ride A3 :)

    If you go to a lot of shows and want to be able to drop it super low then air ride is a good option but in my personal opinion I'd prefer coilovers or a good springs and shocks kit for everyday use and as said air ride is super expensive.

    coils all the way... a lot more functional and economical. personally i hate half of wheel covered by archer:) it reminds me these long amercian car with not rounded archer on the back but covering 1/3 of the wheel.

    Air ride is super expensive, but its also super clever. I'm in talks with Luke Massy who owns Plush Automotive in Leceister as my cousin is having air ride fitted to his Jetta in 2010 when he gets it and I'm also toying with the idea.
