    If you're going with that sort of setup i'd add another 200 pounds or however much the V3's cost and get them, V3's have a rebound and dampening option. My mate got some V3's on his Mk3 GTI 16v but not even got round to play around with the settings though.

    Thanks for the advice. I've got the V3s on a Mk2 Golf but was wondering how they are on an S3. It will never see a track so possibly overkill but, as you say, don't cost much more.

    v3 dampener unit is miles better than the v2 dampener

    v3s' dampeners can soften/stiffen themselves up more quickly, absording impacts of potsholes and the like well
    v2s' don't soften; just stay rigid and wooden like a v1
    A v2 setup on 7kg spring gives a more unforgiving ride than v3 setup with 9kg spring

    4wd v3s have external expansion chambers and different valving to the 2wd version

    Just how they perform on the road really - specifically on the A3/S3. I did go in an S3 recently on coilovers (Avo possibly) and handling was amazing compared to my set up (standard shocks and eibach pro kit).

    Snowy - thanks for the info - very helpful.

    Perform really well, car handles like a fat go-kart... Not the most comfortable ride, but definitely not backbreaking...
