    The B6 shocks are on my upgrade list at the moment. Funny enough I have just been looking at them...

    Id Better start saving the same as Steveyboy..
    I was lucky enough to get some second hand shocks that had covered about 5000 miles, its totally true what people say about it transforming the car.

    I love them

    Also when you do your RTAB's use the poweflex ones. Dont waste your time with the standard bushes...
    With all that done your car will handle like a dream mate...
    Yeah Ive been pricing up the powerflex ones

    Think itll be springs and bushes this month, shocks next month and get it all fitted the month after, if only I wasnt going on holiday....

    The lowering springs lower it by 30mm front and rear, so the Bilstein shocks should be ok
