    FK Coilovers??

    Ok...so it will have to wait till Spring but Iím wondering if the FK coils are any good for as cheap as they are. The Solo Werks are only $100 more but $450 for coils seems too good to be true...

    I had FK on my a5. the ride quality was horrible through bumps. if your roads are flat and encounter little to no bumps then I don't see it being TOO bad. if u have bumps, don't bother.

    Either get a good Spring/Shock combo for around $800, or save up and get quality coils. Handling and rebound rates with a vehicle is not something to mess around with

    I spent $750 on K Sport adjustable coilovers. ( everywhere else was $900+ for them, I just found them on a deal)
    Everyone that rides in my car is super impressed at the ride quality compared to stock. Imo, they are probably the cheapest I would go on coils.

    Many 5 owners run the kw kit. I personally had some seat time with a v8 s5 maxed out low on the kw has and it felt great. Wayyyyy better than the fk. Id look at those for sure. @mops@supremepower can get u a set
