after buying my weitec xs coils in april, i finallly got around to having them installed. installation costed me an arm and leg but oh well. ride is perfect for me, its really tight, and the car really sticks to the road (which can be bouncy at times but eh)
anyway, i have no other 1500 dollar coilover kit to compare these too so im in love with them for now.

Re: (VDUBRACER187)

installatin was 375!! and this is why
i supplied him with Noah's DIY (great informative diy) so i figured he'd def be good as he is experienced with vw and aftermarket suspension
he calls me around 1 today and said that he put the helper spring on the bottom below the main spring because it was assembled wrong prior to being installed
i was like no way man i called weitec and they said theybe been doing it for the past 2 years like that
hes like oh well do u want me to put it back the other way
im like YEAHHHH
so it took him 1.5-2 hrs doing that so i got charged another 120 bucks.

Re: (1goodguy)

i meant it as in i have never ridden in one of those 1500 coil systems like h&r and bilstein and k2 and those (i konw its an exaggeration)
so in other words, these seem aweseome to me. i spent 850 shipped
