don't you have somewhere to be this morning?

FK konigsports if your on a budget
H&R Ultra Ultra Lows if you have too much cake
B&G if you want to be adventurous.

Re: coilover options and opinions. lets hear them. im in the market. (MINT GTI)

I am also in the market and leaning towards KW V2 for a few reasons.
1. supposed to be corrosion resistant with the inox-line coilover
2. excellent reputation
3. they go a lot lower than my PSS9's
4. height and dampening adjustable
Good luck in your search

no personal experience, but everyone who i've read that has purchased H&R ultra-lows has been pretty happy.

Re: coilover options and opinions. lets hear them. im in the market. (spoonie)

my car has the older variant of the dampening adjustable B&G's on it

They are set full soft and still ride VERY FIRM...I freakin love them
I can go low enough to set the oil pan on the ground if I wanted to.
MY only complaint...they don't make em for mk1's

I loved my FK's - they were cheap and everyone was surprised at the handling and comfort and my car was pretty dropped.

i have to disagree. the ride goes to crap and the struts cant do their job if you drop the car too low.
that said, i love my 9's, but its not the set to go for if you're going to rock your car super low.
