Had no dealings with thesecoils but heard good and bad stories. Although i and a few friends have bought TA Technix coils from germany£180 to your door and no complaints. I reckon if its for a budget weekend car and on a budget then it will do well. just my view. no point going out spending £500 on semi race suspension which will do no more than 1000 mile a year and nowhere near a track

i have ta technix in my wee golf and i cant complain about them. mine are wound rite down and i use it everyday and there fine. i paid 170quid for them and they took 2 days to come. my mate has hottuning coils in his 6n2 polo and i find them quite hard compared to mine.

I am one of the friends Nigel says has the TA Technix. Have them in the Jetta. It has done less than 100 miles in the year but have KW's in the VRS and to be honest don't notice a great difference in ride quality between them.. If your not going to track the car, they are spot on..

I know it's a bit late but... I have a set of Hottuning coilies on my 8volt, they are cheap and do a grand job of dropping the car on it's hole. Only bad thing about them is the harsh ride. V bouncy, so bouncy infact that the front wheels have been known to leave the ground if you hit a slight bump in the road under hard acceleration. There seems to be two kinds, the ones I have are silver with red adjusters. The others (which my bro had on an Astra turbo coupe thing) are silver with red and blue adjusters and top caps. These are the ones I'd go for, still kindy harsh but more like lowering springs rather than back breaking, eye shaking harsh as a mother f@#ker.

Just make sure they're well greased or sealed as they tend to completely sieze within a short space of time. Might even be worth taking them out every 6 months to make sure they can still be moved.

Would it be worth getting a set of coilovers for a standard mk2. Wouldnt want to lower much, keepit fairly standard looking but better the ride quality, any suggestions!

ye defo ' date=' at 170 posted to your door I couldnt complain[/quote'] Hey dude, sorry i havent got back to you, usual story for me... still havent even had a chance to get the Mk3 finished for my daily yet :( Rokko coilovers to me are like every other coilover out there.... they lower the car to where you want it, and they are harsh as heck lol.... I cant get the Mk3 down as much as id like becuase there isnt enough axle weight to hold it down! lol, and its bouncy as heck with it :P Im going to have to start wearing a bra to hold my moobs in place.

Can anyone recommend a spring kit or coilover kit for my gti 16v... not looking to slam it, just lower front slightly... had fk konigs on my audis and they never gave me problems.... the back of the golf mk2 is sitting lower than front so just looking to balance her out...would prefer coilovers as springs sometimes dont sit the way you want them to
