I quite like the B8s on my Golf TDI. Have them paired with H&R OE Sport springs. They don't feel noticeably different in regular driving over bad roads. Everybody says the roads where they live are the worst in the country so I won't say that but they're not well maintained. Body roll is much more controlled in turns/on-ramps. Car feels more planted at highway speeds, probably a combination of being slightly lower, slightly stiffer springs and the reduced body roll those things provide. For me the B8s do exactly what I would expect the B6s to do but with lower overall height.
