    These are absolutly fantastic, never had any problems with these coilovers at all. Also a MUCH smoother ride than FK highsports (2 of my mates use FK's)

    Im looking for coilovers at the moment for my S3........not sure what to get. Just want some that arent too expensive and dont have a harsh ride quality.

    Was recommended some Weitech's for £620

    Do you have any other recommendations?

    I can recommend AP coilovers, excellent OE like ride quality yet awesome handling if you want to throw it about. I had APS fit them to my old s3 and they confirmed to me that they are made by KW but just rebranded as they are a budget coilover, i have every reason to believe Ed at APS as well as hes honest and trustworthy and a KW approved dealer, plus they're around £200 cheaper than the Weitechs you were recommended.

    As mentioned the AP are also a very good option for the money.

    Give me a shout if you need any advice or prices.
