    that looks great mate.

    are those the £160ish blue JOM ones seen on ebay? what's the ride quality like at that height? I've now decided I want to go for coilovers to replace my current 50mm shocks/springs, it's just not low enough any more!

    Not that bouncy at all....comparing to my mates mk3 with fk's....not that bouncy at all....and yea deffo does help handling.

    I picked them off a guy on UK-MKIV's....but yea these are the ones on mine

    I mean if your not going serious track day....then what is the point of spending a fortune on coilovers when you are doing it for show?

    Yeah think they look sweet, gives the A3 such a better stance when it's dropped, yours looks a similar height to my old A3 :)

    Nope. But the single bumps are completly ********....with my old springs on..midbox kept getting cought...so i got that removed and put these coilovers on....not anyproblem..

    Im thinking of raisin the back up quite a bit to get the nose down look....who thinks i should?

    don't do it, just take the front down more!!!

    My A3 on weitec shocks N springs is much lower at the front than the back, and I want to change to coilovers to level it out!

    some people say the drop links work, others don't.

    You're best off fitting a set of ARB's anyway, they make such a massive difference.

    As Prawns says, ARBs are always the best option.
