      Hello Everyone, I have been looking into getting air suspension for quite sometime. Back when Chassis Tech and Praxis was the only bolt-on solution. Nowadays, there are various bolt-on setups as well as known VW air suspension experts that can easily help answer any question you might have. But sad to say, the new VWvortex has hindered the search to only the recent threads. The FAQ still references the old zeroforum software, so all the links are unusable. Being that I am a noob with Air Suspension, I would to help create a resource of some useful information and hopefully update the FAQs at the same time. What do you guys think? BTW, I am no expert, I am putting this list together to help others (like myself) to make the right decision for choosing the right setup that would suit their needs.

      Here are some stuff to start...

      Thanks guys, it's took some time but it was well worth it. I was able to find the Air Management thread as well as the HardLines thread.

      One thing I need to locate if there is any information regarding Mason Tech Great Plates with AirLift/EasyStreet rear bags on a MK4. Also, if there was additional information between different grades of air lines, pros/cons, hard/plastic, etc.. etc..

      BTW, I added the request in the above post and included some new ones that was started yesterday/today.

      Perhaps next to the names of those with builds you could put what kind of managemen system they are running. Might make it easier for those who are seeking specific setups.

      Dang dude. I had no clue. I saw Nic a few times and he never mentioned anything of anything to me. Him and Rigo park with our group under the parking structure. My MK4 is still at the body shop, so we took my wife's Passat and rolled with German Exklusiv. If you saw someone wearing a green shirt, it could of been me.

      Next year for sure. It was a last minute thing and I am glad we went.
