Hi folks, I've been looking at this set up for a while now....not that there is anything wrong with my Eibachs? As per usual I get bored easily lol. Also I do have plans to visit Germany and the Nurburgring at some point in the near future? ;) So after hearing some positive things about them, from other members etc....I decided to bite the bullet and go for it even tho' they have shot up in price since Jan (this year) :eek: Luckily, I found these on fleabay and saved quite a few £££'s....:D

Here's what :santaclaus: delivered.....

Here's the Spec:
Bilstein B16 PSS9 Height & 9-Way Damping Adjustable Coilover Kit.The PSS9 Kit is a ride height adjustable coil-over system with 9 different damping force settings. This Coliover Suspension Kit has created an entirely new level of performance suspension. Based on the monotube inverted technology, the Bilstein B16 PSS9 meets the highest standards. This system features threaded body ride height adjustability, and also allows for adjustable damping in both the compression and rebound cycles. Once fitted to the car these damping settings are easily changed by turning the aluminium adjuster to fine tune for your driving style. The Bilstein B16 PSS9 suspension kit lowers from 30-60mm and is TUV approved.

All being well they should be on the .:R by end of next week? :tee:

Hi folks, I decided to upgrade a few extra bits while doing the suspension. I am hoping this should enhance the overall set up....for now and future mods? ;)

What made you go for the Bilstein suspension over KW mate? Anyways, looks awesome and I'm sure there is a Bilstein banner on one of the bridges at the Nurburgring, so I'm sure that will bring a smile as you fly under it

Hi George, after speaking to a few owners/OC members who have lived with either KW V3's or Bilstein PSS9's or both on their Mk4's? The only thing which made me choose one over the other was the simple/easy adjustment on the Bilstein's compared to KW's. The price, build quality, performance and handling of each kit were both on par to be fair so I guess it's personal preference....;) :top:

Hi folks, still no further forward since the last update. Due to my mates garage being very busy ie no ramp space etc - I have not been able to have the Bilstein's + VF engine mounts fitted as yet!:hmpf:

So all this waiting around is not good for a very bored Richard..lol Anyway, here's another VAG inspired mod but I can't decide whether I've done the right thing or not? :dontknow:

Incase you guys n gals are wondering....? The Audi Avant rear wiper has been replaced with a Scirocco one which looks similar to the MK5 Polo one but is 'Actually' 100mm (approx) shorter and a bit more chunkier looking...;)

Here's the spec Audi wiper Vs Scirocco wiper:

Audi blade = 340mm
Audi arm+blade = 440mm

Scirocco blade = 260mm
Scirocco arm+blade = 340mm

It's growing on me but the pics don't do it any justice tbh....

Thanks for reading :tee:
