so guys, what differences are there in suspension between the b5 and b6 models?

the reason i ask is because i'm debating whether or not to get the tein SS coilovers. there's not much info about them from b5'ers, but a lot of b6'ers like them.

b6 rear suspension is completely different. as an altenrative, look in the s4 thread about the vogtland/startup racing coilovers group buy. that would be a good setup.

Word to the wise, don't bother w/ Tein. Turns out, dyno ppl tested 'em, and they recommend Koni, Vogtland, Penske/Startup racing, and Bilstein. I'm personally doing some research b/c I wanted to pick up a set of SS Tein's, but found out they're not as good as anybody says they are. Then Bilstein's are great, but you can save $200+ for a set of Startup Racing's and they're dyno proven "better".
