When do you get your coilovers delivered mate?

I've got bilstien b8 dampers on my car so can vouch for the road holding capabilities of thier products, would be nice to be able to adjust the rebound on them as they are hard at times..

Not sure if they make them for the mk5 tbh silver line make them I've had polly bush ones as well there ok feel like standard ones just lower your car 10mm , the adjustable ones are great if you plan to track your car etc but cause uneven tyre wear

I can get you a discount through CompBrake.

Remember an adjustable top mount is solid and there is no give in them. They do creak and grumble as there is no bushing at all in them. If you where going to get top mounts to adjust camber you might aswell get adjustable track rods to adjust castor

Just fitted my bilstein coilovers on the front of my mk4 and they are a cracking bit of kit. Having a bit of a problem at the moment though. Driving feels strange and i have just had the abs light come on? Any ideas guys?

You must of knocked or snapped the abs sensor

How do you mean strange? It will feel different because of the seriously upgraded suspension
