    For a little bit more i'd personally go for the Weitec. Jamex are the lowest entry level coilovers.

    i have had spax rsx before on a bmw, are they any good on a audi a4 1.8T, i appreciate that more expensive means much better, but i need new front shocks and £700 is out of the question at the moment. any input is welcome. thanks. any alternative for around £450-£550?

    was looking at bilstien shocks with conventional style eibach sportline springs, but i have sport suspension and would like to see a futhur 30-40mm drop.

    You could always buy these and use them for 1-2 years then save for some better quality ones:think:
