however, if i were you, i would save for coilovers...thats what i did. brand doesnt matter all too much, just dont get some crappy ones. i've heard st coilovers are good, my buddy has FK, H&R are nice. i personally have KW V1, lots of reasons for that but i wont get into it now.
if you can, find a TDI in your area on H&R springs and see if they'll let you drive it to get a feel?
