    MK4 ones will not fit a MK5 - you can get AP coilovers for £350 - do a quick google.

    There was a gent selling some brand new ones called pdubstyling - give him a pm

    45/30 is the lowest I have seen off the shelf ones for the MK5 - can probably get some custom ones made up but the springs won't be cheap and neither will the shocks.
