      Ended up selling the coilovers and spending a little more money than I previously intended. My full Airlift kit with Autopilot V2 has been ordered and paid for, all I need to do now is pick it up at waterfest and install it asap. Pictures will come shortly after. First bagged mk6 gti in MTL canada
