    Guy from tein rang me as i asked them to before they sent them just to check fitment etc.. He said he didnt think i would get the drop i was looking for considering the spring rate was alot stiffer! Weight of car would not allow a full drop! So he said i could cancel and refunded my money nice fella really! I ordered some dgr instead which are fully adjustable with pillow ball top mounts n all sorts! Should be kool

    Not heard of DGR let us know what your verdict is once fitted

    Started my coilover install today of my dgr kit! 5 hours in and i have the rears on but its rubbing on the inner liner. I think this maybe due to the camber adjuster needing to be aligned and maybe cambered in at the top as to not foul the lining! Looks low on the bk must admit but am not going to adjust just yet until i get the fronts done tommorow! Then take it for an alignment!! Will update when finished but jesus was it hard work getting them in and right sooo time consuming....

    Back looks ace mate! And probably for the best if you get the garage, the fronts are more time consuming than the rears, especially that pinch bolt.

    Looking good if anything a bit to low but hard to tell without the front done as it will balance it out more plus you can adjust as and when after its all fitted good work fella looking forward to more pics I need to get saving to do mine

    Well when you set it all the way to hard then it does exactly what its supposed too, be harddd... But then the whole reason i fitted it was so i can corner at high speeds around the nurburgring so its all goodddd! Planning on doing a lot of track days in it this year so i wna make sure it can handle well as i can make it! Just need the rear arb from the rs4 thinking of buying it all this week and having a crack next weekend!

    They are very good to be honest pete you could set them all the way soft as i did on the rears and they are as standard ride wise! But with all coilovers you have to adjust until your happy i guess

    Here are pics with coilys now on front and rear dropped her quite low as it is what i like! I have the coilys set to all the way to hard minus one turn and they are stiff! Ride quality is slightly bumpy as you would expect but suits my spirited driving style nicely! Just have to get the wheels aligned which i will be getting done on saturday! If you turn coilys to soft they ride very much like standard!

    Looks spot on! I cant wait to get my Wietecs on. How did you manage with the pinch bolt up front?

    Will be interesting to see how these coilovers fair over time, they were fairly cheap for adjustables, compared to the Weitecs I ordered.

    I personally didnt do the fronts but the mechanic said it was a piece of cake real easy! But then he does this stuff day in day out!
    I did however set the height up once i recieved it! Well ive been reading on some of the american sites and no one as of yet some running for 3 years have had no problems! So fingers crossed they wnt go wrong but lifetime warranty on them anyway and they are basically an exact copy of the d2's!!

    As for a side on pic here ya go

    To be honest had my first fight with a drive way today and lost by bottoming out so i think the rears are going to come up a tad, more than happy with the fronts though! The most difference is the better handling oh my gosh has the understeer got better just need that rarb now that will make it the shezzzyyyy! Overall very happy with my purchase and think it is definetly a contender up there with the more expensive makes! For 500 smackers you cant go wrong.. Trustttt meeee lol
