      I purchased a set of the BC Racing BR coils overs and was looking for some suggestions on dampening set ups. I have a MKV GTI and if anyone had any advice or suggestions for their soft/hard settings on the coils it would be great. I run pretty much full stiff in the front right now, the ride is firm and forgiving but would like to see if anyone has some suggestions.

      Just play around with it; every car and every person are going to want something different.

      Edit: You are going to want the rear to be softer than the front though; as there's less weight back there.

      I find on my mkiv there is two good setups. One sport stiff and one more comfortable.
      I also installed these on a jcw mini, same settings but he installed swift springs. I would highly recommend you get them. Same spring rate seemed to be the best. The overall comfort was greatly improved and corner traction was also greatly improved. Worth the $380 online.

      Anyways, around 10 on the frt from soft and 8 on the rear.on sporty mode 20f 25r,but that helps some understeer on my worse suspension imho.
