    Hi, basically im looking into purchasing some of the budget FK AK Street Coilovers for my 1.8t.

    Theres 2 on ebay, same coilover, different dealer.. but quite a big price difference and i cant seem to work out why.

    FK AK Street Coilovers Kit for Audi A3 8L 1.8T Sport | eBay UK

    FK AK STREET Height Adjustable Coilovers. Audi A3 | eBay UK

    Performance 3000 is offering 12 months warranty, and is stating they do not go as low as the other listing. (although there the same coilover :S)

    Someone please help me haha :)

    The ride on the Weitec and AP kits is a lot better then the FK AK but you are paying quite a bit more but as with most things you do get what you pay for.
