I would like you to know that I will GLADLY take the opportunity to put these coil-overs on my car and give feedback. Sadly nobody gave feedback from last time, how dare them, its 2010 where are the responses?!

I'm currently in the market big time for coils, shocks, shine, new spindles, or SOMETHING to make my GTI ride GREAT. Soooooo many different threads on here (the sticky above this one)about geometry, coils vs shocks, spring matched to different company shocks etc....it makes the decision really hard. I'm so overwhelmed with the possibilities but my car on the other hand is overwhelmed by the slightest bump in the road along with each bump aggravating me more and more, feels like my car is about to fall apart. Not sure if i want to buy stock shocks for now until i research a LOT more to save myself aggravation or

I see that NONE responded here and I would like to put you guys to the challenge :) 2001 was a long time ago I know, but what better time to bring back a discount/deal :beer: Hell, I'll also even put a sticker on each side of my rear window about the size of my palm to help promote them (and if you can send the stickers too):p. Of course, I would need a deal (call it a military discount or something) ;)

Also what are the prices for rebuilds on them if you guys do that and warranty info? That's another big deal to me, if i was to spend 1500 on them and be able to rebuild each for like 150 each or whatever it might but, it would def be worth it i think. If I did get the tt spindles and these I would be golden right? Sway me the right way :D

Got the KW "high sport" model on my R32. Overall, a good coilover but not really designed to handle rough winter conditions and/or streets. Had them less than a year and front struts appear to be blown out already. Looking in to warranty info right now.

I ran Koni's on my 04 GTI for about a year and a half, the only trouble I had was once the struts blew out from bumpy/ pothole filled roads, I couldn't get them off. The hollow nut on the top of the front struts was pretty worthless and crumpled upon trying to remove the top nut, other than that little design flaw, they were great. Oh and if you could maybe sell the new front replacement struts separately would be awesome.;)

I have not had much of a chance yet to put them to the test(KW v.3) seeing that our winter never seems to want to give up. What little chance I have had so far, I like the ride. The suggested settings were a little harsh, but after talking with one of your techs he suggested a new setup and it seems to be much better now.

The roads are in really bad shape here, I hope I don't have to test the KW warranty reliability.
