Read the full Release below.
After a long and rigorous testing period, NGP is proud to announce the addition of our latest suspension system: the Type II Coilovers for Mk5, Mk6, B6 Passat/CC, Audi A3 8P and Mk2 TT (FWD) models. Initially available at only $1199.99, these are priced very competitively to similar coilover kits such as those from H&R, Koni,
Bilstein and KW.
Featuring significantly stiffer spring rates and dampers than our Type I system, the Type II’s are designed with the more aggressive driver in mind. In addition to the stiffer shocks and springs, the Type II’s also feature adjustable front dampers for that extra fine tuning capability. Whether you’re at a weekend track event, running an autocross course, or just simply like to go extremely low, our Type II coilovers will more than meet your needs.
What’s the big difference between the Type I and Type II coilovers?
While our Type I system is designed for drivers who want a great blend of ride quality and handling ideal for the average daily driver and sporting enthusiats, our Type II system is designed with the more aggressive driver in mind. The first big difference are the springs: while the Type I coilovers feature progressive rate springs which are suitable for the street, the Type II’s utlize a linear racing-type spring system with much higher base rates. To match this increase in spring stiffness, the Type II’s have firmer twin tube dampers, with adjustable rebound damping in the front. Additionally the front housing is shorter, allowing for a lower ride height with no comparable loss in suspension travel. These changes make for a significant difference in performance, handling and lowering capabilities over our Type I coilovers, while having a much more aggressive ride and appearance.
Please note, you cannot get to stock or near-stock ride heights with this suspension. Custom rear spring solutions for those wanting more ride height at the rear are in development, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
