    From owning cheap coilovers previously, you really get what you pay for with these.

    Just a friendly piece of advice :)

    i have these fitted, its low, its a fairly hard ride but it handles like a go cart.. and i like the "so stiff it looks racer" look so...its fine for me, pretty well made as well.

    I don't know what coilovers are on mine but they are cheap and bouncy... Only my second day with the car and I'm getting annoyed!

    quick question when adjusting the height do they have a click per 10mm or something? or is it all guess work?

    ok scrapping the dodgey ebay seller:

    Venommotorsport are selling them for £195 now:

    http://www.venommotorsport.com/manu...&product=BluelineCoilovers&make=Audi&model=A3

    think id pay the extra £40 just for customer service and a good delivery time!

    still a good price and the guy one the phone theyve sold loads of em in the past 6 months. None have ever come back with any problems and he has a set on his corrado. Rated highly for the price:icon_thumright:

    Sorry Dave, No there no click but you can measure the thread length or count them, personally i used a micrometer to measure the distance between the adjustment point and the bottom of the strut. Its set just over 1 and a half inches above minimum ride height for the front and the rears are as low as they go without taking the cup out.

    I got mine from racedynamics2ufrom ebay. £169 + P&P. arrived 2 days later. No problems at all.

    I bought cheap FK coilovers for my Clio. The ride was great . . . for a week. It then banged about constantly and eventually resulted in serious steering rack issues, as well as fooked top mounts etc.

    I will not be buying cheap coilovers again. Would rather spend my money on uprated Bilsteins and springs.

    Just food for thought, as it might be great and rock solid now, but that really gets tiring!
