    Hey mate I have KW Variant 2 Coilovers on my Hatchback my wee bro has Koni 1150 Coilovers on his Veccy B and fitting them is easy but honestly mate I would pay a speacialist company that can corner weight them and I would also buy an alighnment kit like the Eibach one Camber bolts and front and rear shims a lot of people either don't know about this or just totally over look it but honestly it is something you really need to have done if you want your car to run right and perform the way you want them to instead of me trying to explain all this to you and give you the reason why this is a really good thing to do if not a "must" with coilovers have a look at this video mate it explains the full set up from begining to end.

    Hope this helps some mate...

    Don't know about where you guys are but it took me a while to find a speacalist that done it his name is Kenny Brown KBM Motor Engineering but he's located up in Glasgow/Scotland it's amazing the difference that it makes to the set up after having it done and as I said with the Eibach Alighnment Kit also! You can get that from Demon Tweeks...
    Mibbe if you look for garages in or around your area that set up Rally/Track day cars they might be able to do it or point you in the right direction
    but as you'll of noticed from the video don't let garages tell you that 4 wheel alighnment will do the same job you "need" scales for the job to be done properly there must be places near enough to you but as when you make a Kit Car up by law you need to have this done to make the car road legal!!!
    Maybe google garages that cornerweight cars you might be lucky and find one that does it near to you!
    My mechanic has guys coming up from down south all the time in Scoobys,Evos and one guy that owns a Porsche Turbo coming up to have work done to their cars the guy with the Porschehas a season ticket for the Nurburgring and comes up every time that he's going to the Nurburgring to have the car set up properly he is pricey but you get what you pay for...

    Being as I'm in Telford too, I'd also like to know lol...

    Most places round here don't want to fit stuff they haven't supplied so I think I'll be fitting my own at some stage??
