it's just MY opinion,this not an open debate.

I'm on H&R super sports. I'm actually a little bit lower now because they've settled more. this picture was taken when I first got them on. new shocks is up to you. People say you need them and others don't. I think eventually you will have to get them though.

if you're ONLY concerned about looks, you can pretty much go with whatever you want to get the ride height you like. correct me if i'm wrong guys, but anything more than 1-1.25" of a drop on stock shocks might be asking for trouble in both shock longevity and ride quality. i've had no problems with pro-kit (50k + on stock shocks on my 07 rabbit) and the vw driver gear springs should be fine with the stock shocks...

super sports are definitely lower. mine was lowered about 1.25" in the front and around 1" in the back with the pro-kit...
