So, how does it ride?
Softer or harder than stock?
Does it bounce?
Some say that DG springs on stock struts/shocks give a better ride.
Your thoughts on these as far as ride quality vs stock?

They sure look linear!

TyrolSport is the ones selling them. They are in New York.

Sorry all, I guess that's the price without shipping.

See their post in the vendors classified/ general announcements section about all VWR parts.

PM or call them! They don't list the wheels yet either but can get them.

Read Arins comment there. Looks like every dealer will be able to sell VWR goodies.
TyrolSport is just the first to actually have product, or at least post up about it.

Heres my thought and Logic (THIS DOESNT MEAN ITS REAL):

VWR Springs could be just rebadged Driver Gear Springs. Since VW Accessories is actually a VW company posing as sort of this aftermarket company, various VW Sport applications (Or racing) trickle down into the mainstream customer use.

However, if these springs offer more of a drop and are LINEAR, then we have a new spring on the market. However, seeing the drop from the picture, the layout of the coils, and the blue nature of the paint (Albeit, anyone can paint springs blue and get away with it) I believe we have rebadged DG Springs. (Or you can say Driver Gear is rebadged VWRs).

So....with that thought process, why spend an extra to get specific "VWR" springs? When I saw Tyrol was carrying VWR stuff, I immediately toyed with the idea of buying up every VWR mount I could find. I even though of switching intakes to have that "VWR" stigma across my engine bay. However, I have all of these modifications already and no need to spend the extra money. I will use the mount sourcing as a countermeasure if my BFI Stage 1 Mount ever fails. ANd juding by the harsh beating it has gone through without any sort of wear and tear, I feel I might have saved $300-$400.

15 - 20 % is something very difficult to feel. Differences in tire pressure, tire make and
age of your shocks may be more significient.
