    Sorry for being thick!!

    Car went into the local VAG specialist for a Pre-mot (pleasant surprise, got it free!!)

    Mechanic found the wee tail has broken off the N/S rear spring.

    I'm going to have both replaced with standard items, search threw up a load of threads about GMBH springs and silver / pink dots.

    I noticed some pink dots on the spring that is broken.

    Also checked the optionals, does this mean anything? - 1JF = Rear sports shock absorption

    Will replacement springs from a factor match or am I best going to the Stealers to get them off the chasis number, what kind of bill can I expect?

    Cheers guys

    I have a full set of 2 front and 2 rear pink dot springs for sale. Will be considerably cheap than new ones and in excellent condition. Pm if you're interested

    I went to Audi for mine for the same reason, concern over the specific spring rates, I paid through the nose but just saying they were 4 blue dot springs, and them turning up, was good.

    Hope somebody can help, Beachbuggy offered me some springs.

    Will the rear springs off his BAM be the same as my 01 AMK??
