H&R sport springs are great but the back end will drop more then the front. Minor adjustment may be required.

Im heading up to WF to hopefully find a good deals on stainless steel coilovers.
My main concern is "stainless", second is "comfort" and last is "price".
I guess my options are : H&R SS, KW V1 and FK Silverlines.
Did i miss any others?
Which would you recommend and if you had to buy all over again, which would you chose.
Konis were awesome but the warranty didn't apply to the CC and weren't stainless (cadmium plated)
This time I wanted stainless though for year round
So on my 2013 I considered the KW V1's, but happened to run into the HPA SHS coils which are supposed to be softer/more comfortable
They're the same exact as the V1's but cheaper & tuned better....so I went with those instead.
Waiting for them to show up at the moment
I almost bought HPA at waterfest, didn't feel like waiting for them in the mail.
KONI are stainless and adjustable, but you have to know to get the Jetta/GTI V versions.
They fit the CC but if you ask KONI they will tell you they dont make CC versions yet.
Ive been driving on KONI all week and love them, the ride is amazing. Comfortable like stock and quick to rebound. No bounce.
Shocks are set to 2/3rds stiff.
i bought konis and i think its very very anoying that u have to take out the back shocks to adjust the dampering. my next buy will be air suspension.
2010 CC Lux DSG, 19x8.5 et35 AU102, Koni Coilovers, APR 2, Carbonio, APR DP, AWE CB, Aspec TOP/Charge, Euro Switch, 6k Head/Fog(lime tint), Plasti Dip Trim, Vag-ina
Again though...they are NOT stainless:
"•4 KONI Cadmium Plated Adjustable Dampers "
I'd say you missed the STs. I didn;t read your whole post, but if you are looking for something simple that works that you don;t have to adjust dampening go with the STs.
At first I wasn't 100% satisfied. SNOBORDRDAN gave me instructions on how to tweak the rear by removing the perches. Now I am 100% satisfied. Even get great stance comments pretty much daily now. Also I live and drive this daily in nasty streets of downtown LA (industrial side) and my ride quality is great. I experimented with a few different rear spring sets from ST. MK5/A3 vs. CC and finally settled on CC due to smoother feel.
If you are in a winter/salt on road climate than the ST material may not be best.
