I know we're all focusing on other stuff at the moment, but I wanted to say how good this kit is (admittedly I've only driven a couple of miles around the block)
Rides really nice, not stupid low, well priced, what more can you want?

Been eyeing up vogtland for a while, what mm drop did you go for? Previous owner claimed that my car had 40mm apex lowering springs and shocks but it has red springs and what looks like standard shocks, definitely due an upgrade

Always a popular kit for us and offers great value for money.

@frst Fancy posting up some pics? @DPM Might take the plunge, if I went with a 50mm drop what are most people doing these days about the driveshaft hitting, engine raisers or a different ARB?

The Whiteline front ARB is the most popular option for us.

Cheers, I'm still well pleased. Might treat myself to a rear arb one day. It could do with a little negative camber up front, but I understand this isn't easy on a mkiv?

Hi @frst can yo post some more pics of your car?. I also want to buy this kit and would like to see the gap between the tyre and arch so i can decide wether to go for the 40mm kit or the 50mm kit. Thanks.
