Coilovers ??

Going after looks and comfort, what do you all recommend. I want to eliminate the gap but don't want to tuck the wheels. My first vw and I want to do it right!! Thanks Dave

I have Koni's. they go pretty dawm low... But the new revisions dont go as low, so Ive heard. Everyone tells me they love my car cause its low and rides comfy as hell.

Had no complaints on my previous ST coils either. just don't go as low as Koni's.

Just had a shop install my STs last week and they look n feel great! They go pretty low as well!

I took this picture this past Friday, the day after the install. And, this setup doesn't have spacers either. Judging by the drop, im going to guess that spacers would cause the wheels to rub while corning.
