      As soon as I get the wife's approval I'm getting the Super Sport springs. I went with the sports on my MKV GTI back in '06 and wished I went with the Race's.

      it doesnt i wanna see what the mkvi looks like. i know what they look like on a mkv gti.

      however SS on mkv say 1.9 where as the mkvi they say 1.5 so i dont know if its because the mkvi comes already a little lower from the factory.

      get supersports.
      Have them on my MkV. perfect stance.
      1 finger all around.
      Unless you want to be slightly lower than stock and want to not worry at all about driving daily, then Sports are for you.

      However, supersports are perfect. They will look good. Why would it look bad anyway?

      Get coils. I think whatever spring you get will most likely have too high of a rate for the stock shocks. Plus, it's not like it's any more trouble to install them. It's just a bit more $$$, but you know you're going to want it, especially since you don't know yet which springs will rake forward or backwards on the MKVIs.

      Pics of a B&G 1.5" drop from here:

      Assuming that "inch" if defined the same at both companies, this should be a pretty accurate representation of what you're looking for.

      The Touring kit does use the sport springs, or at least they're both advertised at the same drop.

      Maybe for the MKV, but for the MKVI there is only the Sport Springs with a 1.2" drop and the Super Sport Spring with a 1.5"/1.4" drop thus far, no Race Spring.

      if u have a mkv after 2007 the super sports will only drop it 1.3 if its before that then its 1.9.

      it drops the same, however 07.5+ came with revised ride height stock so it technically "lowered" it less but the drop is the same still

      Isn't that the truth.

      One of the other benefits to coilovers is the ability to adjust rake.

      I had one of the first sets of H&R Springs for the MK5 back in 2006 and they raked higher in the back something fierce.

      H&R made it right by sending out race rears... which of course made the rear stiff.

      Question 2: What's the ride quality like compared to stock on the MKVIs?

      This is my daily driver. I'm on stock shocks right now and it rides kind of like stock but stiffer. It still handles the bumps on roads pretty well considering the amount of drop. The handling is definitely improved, can take turns at faster speeds with ease. Also, body roll has been widely reduced. I'm definitely happy with this set up.
