    never heard of them before. i'm always a bit sceptical of items with names like that plus it says at the top of the advert the item location is in Belgium but at the bottom says they're a genuine UK company so who knows, seems if they're lying about the company location then what else are they lying about.

    They look like jamex/v-maxx coilovers to me. Should be able to find em easy enough on ebay from other sellers with better info on what you're actually buying, pretty common on there. Never seen em quite that cheap though, usually if something seems too good to be true, it usually is!

    A friend of mine had vmaxx on his 1.9tdi avant, seemed pretty good for budget coilovers, if all you want is height adjustment bit still keep a fair bit of comfort.

    I have the V-maxx set on the rear of my car after my FK's blew up, and they seem ok to me. Well worth the cost.

    I keep meaning to get around to fitting the whole set.
    The ride etc,is deffo no worse than the FK's were

    I have these and fitted to the rear at the moment and the ride is much the same as standard. Height adjustment is easy. will have the front on mid week so will comment again on the whole package.

    Only problem i had was that i had to cut one of the original rubbers to get the top mount on. Nothing hard!!!!

    Easy to fit.

    For the cash paid good quality.

    Thanks for your comments guys (especially Craig). I think I'll go for them as I'm not after a harsh ride I just want the car to sit nice on my RS6 18s. I should hopefully get some soon and I'll report back on them once fitted for the benefit of the forum.

    I am running 18" with 225/40/18 and ride is much the same as standard suspension but it does handle better with the rears only. But will get the fronts on tomorrow and comment on the fiting of the fronts

    Update

    I fitted the front coilovers and is a easier job than i thought it would be.
    Bottom bolt to free bottom of strut, split the 2 ball joints then the 3 strut top bolts. Easy!!!!

    It drives good and ride quality is not much harder than standard.

    Great buy!!!
