      B&G springs will definitely make a visible difference, i hear good things about the ride quality too. just remember, lowering can be addictive for some. i'd take the Coils over the springs so there is an option to lower/raise as u see fit
      Dont get B&G anything...doesnt matter which application u use them with.

      I've had multiple very good experiences with B&G coilovers.

      What's your reasoning for banning their entire lineup?

      Perhaps Tiguans are diff, but Ive ran Springs on M y R and that was a no go....they ended up being so soft i hit a decent bump in NY and the Shock Piston tore through the brand new Strut Mount damn enar ruinng the newly painted hood i got repsrayed.

      Ive riden n friends cars with the Coils and ive never liked the way they rode. MK4 JETTA/GTI/Beetle, a MK5 GTI. Jsut not a huge fan and perhaps saying the entire lineup sucks was jumping the gun, so sory.

      NY roads just suck... But it sounds like it may have been a bad install, no offence to the installer. But as far as the ride quality of the coils is concerned, ur right on the money. B+G's coilover design sounds good on paper but it isnt as comfy as it's advertised.

      @monicups. Both of ur options are good ones, H&R and KW both make great products. KWs go a bit lower tho just saying

      The roads do suck, i agree but not a bad install, i assure you. The shock ended up being stiffer than the spring, i could compress them with my hands, thats no good, Comfortable on a flat road but didnt handle worth a damn otherwise.

      lol, on a side note, i jsut noticed the GTI, thats great. For some reason and no offense but i feel your Tiguan should have bigger tires. it just seems too small, im sure its me but i wonder how that would look.

      The painted roof looks awesome. Reminds me of a 2008+ white M3 coupe.

      Cheers for white tiguan owners, only been modding mine internally but once I hit stage 2 this december I am going to start on the exterior.

      Keep up the great work!
