    Right, after having a really crashy feel to the ride of my car and getting a lot of vibration in the car when hitting small bumps in the road, I have replaced both top mount bushes and bearings, lower ball joints, wishbones with all new bushes and also the arb drop links.
    However, I am still getting the same crashy feel and the vibration through the steering wheel when going over bumps.
    Has anyone else got any suggestions? By the way I have jamex coilovers (not sure if these are knackered, as they do look a little bit worse for wear)

    Cheers

    i think youve answered your own question. coilovers dont really promote comfort

    My coilovers were the cause of all my issues. Swap for a spring and damper kit.

    If your prepared to spend money good quality coilovers are as good if not better then the likes of B8s.

    Budget coilovers + 1400kgs+ of S3 is a bad idea if your hoping for comfort or good handling.
