Ive had 3 different coilover kits on 2 different styled cars.

Jamex coileys on the bora overall softish not too hard very nice ride. £300
Hot Tuning on my 1st mk1, awsome coiley for the price i paid, stiff but not too stiff quite happily riding round on about 100mm drop no worries. £160
Koni Coileys on my current mk1. Awsome ride and holds really well superb but costs a lot more than the other two.

Hot Tuning, Jamex are like fairly budget coiley and theyve both served me well, would recomend to anyone Cool

Im on supersports on the mk1, all ill say is my dentist bill every month is pretty expensive lol. Nah, mine are ok actually, although ive only used them pretty low so the ride is pretty hard, cant complain. U lookin for sum for the bug ? let me know how u get on cus i got a bug that needs lowering aswell.

I've got FK's one mine and i find them really good and a bargain buy at £185.
My rear adjusters are out so its as low as it'll go at the moment and my front has pleanty to lower more if i need the only problem then is catching the arches but their sat on the tyres near enough any and i always catch them going on my estate anyways!!! BUT Fk all the way!!!!
