    which is best

    just got my new alloys and want to lower the car when i come to put the bodykit on just wondering what to go for and what the difference is (excuse me im a noob to this)

    springs or coilovers i have a mk4 and just put 17in oz racing alloys on which would be best?

    Hiya Rob,
    Personally i wouldn't entertain cheap coilovers,(one ony gets what you pay for)
    Your best option is Eibach lowering springs, with your existing shocks,
    But don't go too low please,
    Alternatively opt for a Koni set up Fsd or adjustable

    I have fsd on one of mine and i love them

    Nice alloys youv'e got there,
    I love OZ , i had oz's vela's on my vecky, still have 3 wheels 4 stud tho,

    Regards Bri

    ive got springs mentioned above which lowered the car about 30mm any lower than this and you will have problems with speed bumps etc. you can also get bilstein dampers to match if you want even better performance.

    i defo would not buy cheap coil-overs you will only end forking out at a later date for better ones thats why the naff ones are always for sale on here

    dont mind paying for decent coil overs or decent springs but by sounds of it springs would be best?
