Why would you go with a spring kit (MSS) for $1000+?
I realize they're adjustable, but without proper dampening from matched shocks you won't get the most out of the springs. There's no way the stock shocks have the proper dampening (I have the VWR springs and the shocks are the weak link for sure).

For the money, you could get a true coil-over (like KW V2) that are adjustable and have much better dampening.
Red,

That's an excellent question; but before I can address this in it's entirety, it's important to distinguish the MSS Kit solutions from the "lowering" spring category. If you want to lower the stance of your vehicle for purely aesthetic purposes, then there are solutions at a much lower price point relative to the price on the MSS Kit (ie. VWR, etc.). However, if you want to improve ride comfort, performance while braking, accelerating, turn in, stability at highway speeds with the option to adjust your ride height, then I would seriously consider the MSS Kit Fully Adjustable offering.

For the record, the MSS Kits are "matched" to the stock struts/shocks. The stock struts/shocks are quite capable and as the reviews and data start to come in from actual customers, I think you'll agree.

I'm going to offer more insight on your above question, but look for it on the following thread:

I went on a search for gti clubsport parts and found this website that claims to offer genuine clubsport parts. Unfortunately not all of them provide part numbers. The prices are a little on the high side too.

https://www.kunzmann.de/shop/en/tuni...nz+DESC&page=7

To list out a few:
1. Rear spoiler €1,149
2. Rear diffuser €170
3. Front bumper €1,269

Part numbers for the spoiler:

5G6827936D041
5G6827044GRU
5G6827739041
5G6805945E041
5G6805946E041

Not sure if they're 100% accurate tho.

This site says that the spoiler is not usable on the GTI. Is there a difference between the GTI and Golf hatch?

I saw that too:

The Club Sport roof spoiler can be used only in conjunction with tailgate 5G6827025H or 5G6827025Q.

What are the chances we can just use the lower grill, remove our fog lights and use the side diffusers?

Golf R and GTI share the same hatch. Your spoilers are plastic and the top of the hatch has indents for it to bolt to. The Golf and Golf Sportwagon the Spoiler is actually part of the hatch itself and is stamped metal.

Just FYI.

Since it has a VW part number, why don't you try to get your local dealer to order one directly from Germany?

Do you mean to say that the CS spoiler can be more easily retrofitted to a Golf and Golf Sportwagon than to a Golf R or GTI?
