Hey all! Noobto the forum here :) after info/advice.
So i own a b5 1.8t sport fwd 2000 and am lookin to replace the suspension and stock wheels, have been looking at coilover kits and seems that eibach maybe the way to go, i also want to get some sexy 18" wheels on her.

Coilover kit- eibach pro street s suspension kit
Wheels - rs futura 18x8.0 et35

Anyone with similiar setup? Will these work/fit?

Any advice/suggestion welcomed ;)

Cheers for reading.

That will work just fine. Coilovers are coilovers, but height adjustability, dampering, spring rates, and all around driveability will differ from each unit. But Eibach's are quality. I personally run ST coilovers, 18x8.5 et35 wheels, 225/40/18 tires, 12mm spacers on the rear, and 8mm spacers on the front.

All these guys ^^ are dead right, i have a FWD, wish it was quattro, find a cheap one and build it :D I just bought ST coilovers and miro 111's (18x8.5 front ET35 running 225/40 and 19x9.5 rear ET40 running 235/40) (spacers are for bitches) . ST coilovers are quality as well, little on the cheap side without adjustable dampening but the level is perfect for driving hard or slammed, and im low considering the shit roads in Australia... Your car, do what you like :D im looking for a quattro to swap the wheels at least to and the interior stuff, dont get caught up with fwd, just my 2c [up]
