    Voted for FK because thats what I have. I did have a spax adjustable set up on my old MK3 and it was nothing but trouble (adjustable damping only )

    i voted FK as that was the set up i had on my old Corsa C. I think the Spax ones are newish to the market so your not going to get many coments about them. Some FK kits use Koni internals so you know your getting top quailty.

    I couldnt recommend which ones TO get, but I could recommend staying away from Spax. Their coilovers are nothing special, and I have seen a quite few faulty sets in the past. Knocking and leaking etc.
