    Just need a new set up.
    These seem cheap for the kit.

    For the price I'd say its worth a punt, Worst case Scenario you've spent £160 on coilovers, and somebody will always buy them off you if they are not to your liking!!!!!

    There running great, the fronts were a hard fit, ive adjusted the fronts twice, sump kept bottoming out,the back ones ive left alone(all the way up) fitted a r32 rear arb aswell and new bushes and all the squeaks and rattles have gone.
    Just a matter of how long they last.
    If they fail i will let you know.

    theyve been on 2 months, the camber is fine, theres no uneven wear on the tyres and the wheels sit straight, although i imagine if your lower the back end down you will need adjustable tie rod ends.
    I think s3 dave sells them,but im not sure

    If they had any available... I would be snapping these up like hot cakes!

    For that price you can't grumble if your after some adjustable lowness like I am ! None in the sellers shop :(
