I found these coilovers on ebay and I just wanted them to get a slammed look and some sprinted back road driving. I probably won't done any AutoX or anything like that but what is y'all opinion on these.. I have a tight buget to put into my 2.8 V6, and I was thinking about these, Str8 pipes into a magnaflow bullet style muffler, and some 18 inch RS4 style wheels... Soo just give me y'all opinion's

Absolutely not.

There are other cheap-ish coilovers that perform well; a lot of people run them, and have had good results. (Sorry I can't think of the brands)

"str8" pipes are not a good answer. you will lose low end torque, and your car will sound like ballsack.

What should I do for a cheap set of coilovers. What about Tein Basic's??

tein basics are really no better than the JOM/TA ones you are looking at. FWIW, lots of guys in Europe use those with no problems, but they probably don't perform all that well. the teins aren't bad, but the ride is harsh because the basics have no dampening adjustability. the ss are nice, but for the money you can get some really nice stuff. i'd look for some used kw's or pss9's honestly. if you're willing to spend the 600+ on that euro garbage, you might as well get a product with a lifetime warranty that is transferable by buying something better in the classifieds.

straight pipes are for 67 chevelles and 80 malibus, not audis. audis, except the 2.7t, sound like garbage with straight pipe because the engine gets too gritty high in the rev range. i'd go with a full 2.5" system with a good magnaflow muffler and cat converter.

cheap, fast, reliable-you can only pick two.

Vogtland and KW are relatively cheap. They also perform well.
