Yea, that seems to be the consensus. As for the Golf R shocks, they are slightly cheaper than the Konis on ECStuning. I think you can’t go wrong with DG springs and Koni Yellows.

What about pairing DG springs with Golf R shocks? They are offered for a little less than the Koni Yellows, and are OEM. Haven’t seen too much about this combo, but it would be interesting to see if...

Thanks for the info. Seems like the Konis with the DGs are the best fit for this car. Would you say that they are better than stock?

Never knew about GCSs. I will look into them as well. Are you talking about their coilover conversion kit?

As for the stock springs, I guess they would work well with Konis but the reason why I...

Was at a VW/Audi specialist the other day installing the Tyrolsport Subframe Kits. I was telling him how I’m getting the itch to do some upgrades, even though the car is a 2011 and has 61k miles. It...

Seems like...
