    They're the cheapest of about 12 different KW variants. That would concern me!

    I know a few lads that have or do use them on MK5 GTI's and an A3 and they all rave about them for the money, in fact I have some on order for the S3:icon_thumright:

    All the AP owners I chat to, rate them very highly, when my cousin gets his Jetta in the summer, it'll be either AP/V-Maxx or Weitec that go on it!

    As mentioned they are the cheapest offering from KW but I wouldn't let that concern you.

    We've sold a lot of sets and had really good reviews on them.

    Give me a shout if you'd like any prices.

    That's the 3 brands. They do private label stuff as well now so Vogtland is AP in a different colour, etc.

    Thats a massive saving over say KW3.

    Perhaps I'll have coilovers sooner than I thought :)
