    I have a friend with a 2001 2.5 tdi FWD saloon, 100k on the clock.

    He wishes to upgrade the suspension on a budget. He is disappointed with the current handling, his car is an SE not a SPORT

    He is finding that he is often having to buy extra road in order to get a decent line on corners. Are the springs likely to be on their way out after 100k?

    Should he go for new springs/shocks?

    How much?

    Where to go?

    Thanks in anticiaption
