Just got some koni coilovers installed on my 2001 1.8t. They handle so nicely and the ride is harsher but im young so it doesnt bother me at all. I love the look. Koni coilovers are well worth the money!! Now i just need to throw on some 18's for the summer!!

umm ground to fender is like 24" inches right now. I know there are many that are much lower than that but i still thinks its pretty low. just to point out, Im coming from the stock non-sport suspension.

my car was the stock non-sport suspension before. there was easily a 4-5 finger gap between the wheel and fender. now i can barely get a finger in there.

Are you ever in Fremont? I've seen a blue A4 around my old apartment complex before, it was stock non-sport with 19" ADR wheels. The sidemarkers were painted blue too I think...

Your drop looks great man.

How do you like the ride with the Koni's? Is it bouncy? or more of a stiff firm ride?

Rubbing is non-existant except on U-Turns and when I have to turn the wheel all the way over and I drive too fast while doing so.

I love how it looks this low but it can be interesting -to say the least- to drive as a daily driver.

No fender rolling here, just some c/os :)

I'm still as lower if not lower then all of the above. I'm tucking atleast 1/2" of tire and more this year.

Do you lot have dents in your strut top where the top control arms hit the body ? I have two nice identical ones on each side

I dare say there is no way you can tuck half an inch of 18s in the arch and be running on anything other than bumpstops

This is mine...

Rings, Kit, Mesh, Headlight Covers, Mirros, the taste of vomit climbing up my throat. I hate it all

yeah in NH there is a ride height limit for low and for high it sucks i got the ticket in my MK3 VR6 Jetta, in order to touch the top of the tire if you had small enough hands you head to put your hand strieght up then curl your fingers i tucked rubber in the front because i had a Rake

only in Ca can you really get away with a car that low. I'm at least 1.25" higher and I hate it sometimes.

Fuck I wish this bitch would hurry up and get my struts in, because I am dying to put the H&R Race springs on - not to mention I need to change out the tie-rod ends and only want to pay for one alignment.
