Wonder why they are closing out, might just have to buy a set to sit in for when I inevitably buy a second Mk7. Anyone have feedback on ride quality. Looks like fixed dampening.

So now APR and Dinan are one very interesting.

Just bought a set.

Will let you know soon, if someone in Austin area will help with install. If not, will be a little longer to save up for professional install.

Will go with Powerflex camber adjustable bushing for an extra 0.5 degree of camber

&

Possibly, but unlikely ($800...ouch) Superpro LCA for another 0.5 degree of camber
http://superpro.suspension.parts/aloy0007k

Anyone run these together and will they work on TSI?

Was thinking camber plates but this is a daily.

Don't have DG springs.
Still on stock springs.

be very careful I had V1's on my golf and had to get rid of them. They were way too harsh on the shitty roads around the Phila area

I'd put money that they're just rebranded from the same manufacturer as the SoloWerks....except for the different springs. So I'm not sure I'd have my hopes too high.

Their version of the MK6 coilovers is IDENTICAL to the Solo's, for example, except for the Dinan sticker
http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showth...t=25594&page=7

Just like SoloWerks, WRD, and the PwrHaus coilovers were all the same for the MK6 except different colored hardward and warranties

I feel like hardness is personally subjective but to each their own. I'm thinking Philly roads are equally as bad as Toronto. Thanks for the info. What did you change our the coilovers for?

The term Best is so overused these days... best for what?

Comfort, tracking, height adjustment, price etc.

A $3,500 set of custom valves Ohlins are going to be better than BC Racing coils, however a set of Koni Street Comforts will ride better.
