Re: S40 on bags (Mach_T5)

After seeing Shnooky's C30 with airride, I looked into airride for my car. Unfortunately, my pockets weren't deep enough at the time.

Re: S40 on bags (mad matt)

Hmmm, KW coilovers, you say? Gets me more excited for the install of mine! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> I thought about bags, but I value my trunk space and don't have 3-5gs to drop on the bags. Would be nice though to have them raise at a touch of a button, but a lot of companies are coming out with electronically adjusting coilovers so I think I will get some of them eventually.

Re: S40 on bags (carreragt7)

lol good luck. I could more than tuck if I ditched my fender liners, but I like being able to drive my car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Also keep in mind that the rears are not easily adjustable without dropping the rear suspension. (at least with my K Sports... Maybe the V1s are designed a better?)

Thought about it but am too performance minded and hear they dont handle for crap, just purely for show. Looks sick slammed though for sure.

Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

You heard right. Could definitely use some bracing/tightening. I still get huge body roll for being so low. Doesn't help that our cars are so heavy.

Tell that to my front tires lol. Cars too damn heavy, even with my alignment spot on too much body roll and not even negative camber <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
