However.....AWD or no AWD......NEVER run PZero Rossos in snow (or freezing cold for that matter). That's asking for disaster.

I think SAM (www.sambilmode.com) can get you some nice springs. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I can't think of a reason why they should be more expensive than FWD springs, it's just stupid! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> Sam bilmode sells Heico springs. About $260 for the FWD springs and and $460 for the AWD springs... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: A new set of wheels for my precious! (V50AWD)

What lowering springs are you getting? I have medeas as well and I'm getting the Volvo lowering springs soon(I dont want a huge drop), which lower about 20mm(.7 inch). I just want the car to look normal, not hiked up in the rear. Here's a pic of my s40 w/ medeas with the stock T5 fwd sport suspension...<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v377/akbro93704/CopyofDSC02289.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>
