Would you do it?

Just noticed there are coilovers for £180 with a 3 year warranty.....that's mad. In fact that's what I've spent on new dampers for those sh*tty FK's!

I have FK's and they are the biggest pile of sh*t I've ever had the misfortune of owning. I think the warranty is pretty dubious but how bad could they be?

Question is, should I?

i think its a case of trial and error really

they're not the best quality and i doubt the warranty will stand if they've been fitted onto a modified car.

Dunno if the Raceland brand is any good but Danny Allen from Dubz-by-Dan is selling a set for a Mk2 Golf for £200 - dunno if this helps you at all?

I've decided it's just not worth it....If FK's are bad then these are bound to be awful.

Cars already slammed, now it's going back tostandard until I decide what the hell I'm going to do. Keep it/sell it, I just don't know.

FOr those not in the know it's a 2000 Bora TDI Highline, yes that's a year 2000 Highline, the one dealers tell you don't exsist but actually does!

Raceland coilovers are the best value for money coilovers you can buy, ive had eibach's, weitec, FK's, Tein, KW's and found the racelands to give a better ride and last alot longer! i paid just under £1000 for my KW's variant 2's and they lasted 1 month, the rear shock leaked and one of the front springs was bent!
