My Bilstein/H&R (i think used on Golf R32 VR6?) worked very well; firm but not harsh, stiff enough for occasional track.
But broke, and I want to replace with a coil over (small diameter springs allows wider tires).

Car is firm (poly bushings, filled mounts, stiffer rear sway bar) and handles ok (-2.5 camber front, camber plates, Mk2 lower ball joints). Big K04 hybrid on E85.
Standing by bored/stroked block, AEB heads, cams. G25-660 or 3076. E85.

What coil overs are used for agressive street/fun/daily and occasional track days?

Those cheapo Racelands are awful. HARSH but not handling well. Worst of both worlds.

The UK boys like Gaz Gold, but pretty much unknown on this side of the pond (and current delivery looks like MARCH).

From other cars, I know that Bistein PSS9 are a common go-to. Not sure if used on TT225 as well.

Looking for suggestions, ideas. Also considering good used set if someone wants to unload.

Could always step down to the Bilstein PSS (not the 9 or 10) or go for a set of ST's (made by KW)
