    I've never ever ever had coilovers that werent harsh.

    I'd stick with shocks/springs

    depends on your view of harsh.
    I have KW v3's on full soft at the rear and slightly harder at the front. work a treat

    Well, i agree, there are varying levels, but we are talking Audis here, which are meant to be smoooooooooooth.

    I'm currently running FK Koenigsports on 1/4 turn off soft and they are still awful on bad roads.

    like you say guys we have different views of harsh, well im thinking of going with the vmaxx as ive read they are v smooth for coilovers and it'll be a cheaper mistake if i dont like them i suppose, thanks for feedback guys, if anyone has been in an s3 with the vmaxx any info would be great thanks , daz

    I've got fk coilovers and i think the ride is much better than when i just had lowering springs. It is a firm ride but it's still very comfortable and the handling is 10 times better. Highly recommend fk coilovers.
