      Just make sure to chug it after you drop the shot of Bailey's in. The bailey's will curdle soon after it hits the Guinness.

      Is your "signature" ride height the max allowed by those coilovers? Just wondering what they'd look like if set to max height

      We have about a ½"-¾" to come up out back, and about ¾"-1" to come up out front.

      While we have APR looking into a few details prior to software upgrades, we are wasting no time with the Achtuning VW Golf R and getting right down to the suspension! Our Achtuning VW (Mk5) Jetta 2.5L had up until now been running the H&R Premium coil-over kit taken from the Achtuning A3, which has been down for the count while it awaits an APR Stage 4 motor. We're then going to throw the stock Golf R suspension on the Jetta for now.



      H&R also sent us an RSS Club Sport coil-over kit to put on the A3 but more about that later... It's Golf R time!

      There's an interest there, but certainly not on the priority list.

      The H&R Premium coil-over kit is now installed on the Achtuning Golf R. The Achtuning "Signature" ride height is a mild drop leaving roughly a finger-to-two-finger gap between the top of the tire and the bottom of the fender.











      And if any of you Golf R owners are approached by Mk5 Jetta guys wondering what height they would be running after purchasing your stockers, show them this!

      I suspect the stock springs would have settled a bit over then next few days (weeks?) but I'm curious roughly how much of a drop do you think it would be from stock?

    29. 01-13-2012 04:13 PM #29
      Nope, no settling since the Premiums were previously installed on the Achtuning Mk5 Jetta 2.5L. Didn't take measurements at stock ride height but at its current (pictured earlier), fender-to-ground measurements are 25¼" up front and 25½" out back.

      Looks great, already! Can't wait to see the more you do.

      I had my heart set on a RB, but dang it, if that CW doesn't look. . . perfect.

      I may be the only one who noticed this, but the fact that you guys modded your roll up door with the "R Max" insulation was a nice touch. Perhaps thats the top secret new name for your project car?

      Car looks 10000000000000000000000000x better even with that little bit of a drop, IMO.

      Although... I think I want MOAR LOWWWWWW for my own when it gets here.
