    As title, i want to lower my car. I phoned awesome gti the other day and they gave me a price for around £650 is this a good price or not? That was for coilovers fitted. Also told me that i could just replace the spings but the car has done 140,000 and i dont want to upset the shockers. I really dont know much about lowering cars, but this really needs it doing.

    Few questions if anyone can answer them...

    Do i need tie arms?
    What do i need?
    Are coilovers better?
    A good garage to fit them in Lancashire?
    How much am i looking at in total? (dont really need the best but my budget is about £500 fitted)

    also my car is up for M.O.T soon and its got de-cat anyone know somewhere in Preston that will pass it with hte de-cat on?

    Thanks in advance guys, look forward to seeing the replies.

    I think the average is over a grand easy for changing suspension and rear ties are a must or camber will be out

    Try back street garages that aren't so busy :)

    TBH mate awesome gti charged a hell of alot for fitting, i phoned demon tweaks up for a price for fitting coilovers and they were £100 cheaper and also chucked in 4 wheel alignement and offered to do any other little jobs while they were at it, awesome wanted etc.

    I know where im going.

    Im still struggling. Looks like i'll have to put a cat on it.
    Anyone know if a standard cat will fit on as its a milltek system ive got on it at the moment, Or do i need a milltek sports cat which are very expensive i would have thought :)

    I dont really understand why the last owner put in on??? But thankyou (not)
