Hi Guys,

My R is in need of new front shock absorbers. This is due to normal wear as it is now approaching 80k. My local VW Branch wants the best part of £450 to replace them, that won't be happening!

I'd like to fit FK silverline coilovers, but i'd like a professional garage to fit them and set them up. I am located up in the north east Scotland but i'm not bothered to travel to use a professional garage.

Any ideas?

How far are you prepared the travel? It would be on hell of a hike but the guys at APS are the guys I get to do all the stuff on my R.

I'd second that recommendation for the same reasons!

Theres a Garage in Fife that deals with FI VAGs etc, (heads off to the back of an old PVW mag). They are called Star Performance, Kirkcaldy, KY12XZ, 01592770377.

I've never used them as I'm mainly in the South of England now, but I have heard good things about them in the past for work on older Golfs and Corrados.

am also interested in suspension fitters in North Scotland but as I live 100 Miles north of Inverness, it is even more difficult for me. Anyone know anybody in the Inverness area?
