Personally, I'd take the Mk7.5. I don't have the space in my life for everything involved in owning a 30 year old car that was never sold here.

The new one is cast stainless steel, not iron.

The old version was made by Corsa, who still sells them under their own brand.

I'm set to crack 120k this week.

For me, it's only been the clutch that failed earlier than I would expect. Everything else has just been regular maintenance/wear items.

But you can get a reasonable drop, improved performance, and a comfortable ride with no fiddling.

Coilovers aren't automatically the correct answer for any and all suspension questions.
