      there fk's...good ride for the money i spent...im investing is some silverlines as we speak...so these coils may be up for grabs in the near future...I like that you have a lot of adjustment with the silverlines...the ones i got go decently low, i still have about a inch of threads left front and rear...

      Well I avoid potholes at all costs so it wasnt that. I do drive very... um well, I "drive" my car to its point some times as does the other person who blew their FKs. Not sure how u drive or how hard u push our car but FKs cant keep up with me.

      i have been driving her a lot lately, love this car so much...i have put more miles on her in the last 3 weeks than i have in the last 2.5 years of ownership...i know put the bumpers back on,i had to remove the front again to get her on the alignment rack, and i took off the oettingers so no damage would occur...few pics of my ****ty mk2 daily as welllove the new exhaust note as well.and forgive my rear bumper fitment, i had my euro one on earlier as well...deciding which i like better/.

      It made it to the street! That is a lot of mileage.

      How do you put miles on a car that is not registered?
