We had them briefly on my wife's 9N Polo 1.2.
They weren't bad but I think I'd want something better if I was really going to push the car.
We've sold them on now as she's in for a 20vT conversion B)
Plus she wanted air because of all the bloody speed bumps round here :angry:

They serve a purpose of being coilovers, but as said, buy cheap you will regret it in a years time, they dont last and the ride is supposedly rock hard which makes your car skitish and crashy which is worse than wallowy standard in my book!

Just sold a set of these that I was gonna put on my mk2 8v, was doing a budget makeover, i've read conflicting views on these.. some say they're great some say rock hard, they're 150 so at the end of the day they will serve a purpose and get your car in the weeds they go as low as 120mm. But personally if its handling your looking for and not style points koni/eibach setup will win hands down all day long.. I'd save up for a set of KW's variant 1 or 2, these are recognised as being the best you can get... I couldn't bring myself to put the hottuning I had on the new Edition to the family :D
