    I wouldn't say £470 is exactly cheap. Granted, it's not £800 like kw for instance but I'm not planning on tracking the family bus so don't really need full on race suspension. AP come with the same warranty as kw and is made in the same factory ad far as I'm aware.

    Loved my AP's on my 4mo, but that was a while ago. Heard a lot of bad things about FK, so personally wouldn't buy them.

    I read about your experiences with them but the most of the research I have done has come back positive.

    so what did you do, just buy two coilovers for the rear? which Eibach springs did you use? the ones that lower 45mm @ the front + the spring perches, so roughly 55mm????????

    CMD, what was your issue with the AP's as I'd pretty much made my mind up to go with them...

    From memory, I don't think he could get it to sit right at the rear.

    For me it was the constant noise of them on uneven ground (had them looked at twice at my cost) on the motorway they were fine, adjusting them was a bit of a pain (the rear's were worst) and they were a little to bouncy. The ride just felt odd and skitty feeling.. I still have coilovers on the rear which is a mix of weitec rear shock's coilover spring's on AP adjustable platforms. Eibach springs and B5 perches up front with new s-line (6 month old now) oem shocks

    Thanks for the heads up, maybe I'll stump a little more and get some Weitecs in that case

    Had Aps on my mk4 golf. They were terrible. Really bad ride especially at lower speeds

    Had FK highsports on my ibiza cupra. They were excellent value for what I paid for them. Maybe a tad bouncy but not far from standard ride.

    We have FKs on the Polo with stretched tyres and slammed, we drive it to all the major shows and it's not to bad.
