  12. welcome /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Always seen those wheels on overdone german a4`s.

    looks good on standard body /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif How much did the wheels set you back?

    i picked up the wheels for £300 on ebay about a year ago were i right bargain !

    The suspension was £500 and is
    Fk highsoprts in stainless steel (Silverlines)
    My dad and I fitted it,I was quite lucky with the heights, i set them up before going on the car with 60 mill of adjustment left on the fronts and put the rear platforms in the middle and that is how it turned out.

    Engine mods will have to wait as im 22 and the insurance isnt the best as it is, but when im bored of it and the premium has reduced ill get it chipped and probably use a k04 turbo

    Thanks for all your positive comments !

    can you email me hi-res versions of the 1st and 3rd pic please. Want to photoshop them onto mine to see how they look.

    Had only previously seen them chromed on b5`s which looked naff- but left alone as yours look great.

    £300 is a bargain!

    had ice in the boot too it is a pain sometimes not being able to carry things in there but im happy with the way it looks. Gonna clean the inside of the car out tomorrow and take some pics theres some little details in the cabin too. Basically getting it ready for VW Festival in leeds on sunday anyone going ?
     
  20. Welcome to the forum Phil, very nice looking car. Love those rims.

    How do you find the Coilovers?

    I'm looking to buy a set very soon and the FK Silverlines are high on my list... did you go for the Silverline or Silverline X with adjustable damping? The car looks low as hell already and you say there is 60mm of adjustment left on the front!? Awesome... How much left at the back? And how did you manage to get them so cheap!?

    Best of luck with all your future mods and at VW Festival tomorrow /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Best wishes

    Tim

    I got the Coilovers from Venom Motorsport they are Silverline (not damper adjustable) and were 420 + vat (about 490 inclusive) and came with free delivery. They do the non stainless version for 420 all in

    Theres 60 mm of adjustment left at the front and 45 mm left at the back. The ride if firm as you would expect but still comfortable. My car only has 50k on the clock and you can tell the advantage of running new suspension it dosent crash over bumps etc.
