    Hopefully if all is ok will be a owner of a 3.0 B6 Sport Avant this Friday.

    All ready pricing up some mods and came across AP coilovers on DPM Performance.

    They're nearly half the price of the other big names but is there a reason for this?

    Not planning on tracking the car or anything. What you reckon?

    I have them on my Mk4 Polo. There not quite as good as KW's, but they are better than most of the others.

    I heard that they are made in the same factory as KW which was the deciding factor for me.

    Mine were also only height adjustable, not sure if they are different for other models

    Been reading up and your right abut them being made in the same factory as KW, although... Apparently the factory is 1.7 miles long?!?!? So dont think this would matter.

    All im really after is to lower the car to a desired height. But dont want them to fail after a few years?

    Yeah they are made in the KW factory, i have them on my avant and they have been really good up to now, the ride is abit harsher (also have very skinny tyres on 19'' alloys) but still a good ride for me and a fraction of the cost of KW, id recommend them

    I've got AP coilovers on my R32 and they transformed the handling. Not much harder, but much less crashey compared to the stock set up. I was very impressed for the money.
