THREAD CLOSED! These are sold. Thanks all.
Up for sale is a great deal on my B+G S3 Speed Sensitive Coilovers. They look great and work great. These coilovers are very rare nowadays especially since many manufactures no longer make all the cool stuff they did for our TT's as they did when there was a larger after-market sector a few years back. The technology behind these is pretty cool, and pretty much goes after the "I wish Koni FSDs were a lot more sportive crowd". These coilovers dampen according to your speed and road conditions, I believe the shock takes input according to frequency of oscillations that it gets as you are driving and the dampening is automatically adjusted from there. I found the coilovers to be about on par with H&R for stiffness. I refinished the coilovers and their springs from the original boring silver to a much sexier and resistant rubberized black to cover up some of the peeling of the original spring paint and to have them match B+Gs newest RS3 line of coilovers.
2 Font springs & shocks
2 Front spring plates, helper coils, and helper coil mounts
2 Rear springs &shocks
2 Rear perches
Things you should know (i.e. why your getting such a great deal besides the fact that I'm a nice guy)
* As pictured in pic#3, a metal bushing one of the rear shocks is missing. Best option is to just transfer the insert from your old OEM shock. Otherwise, a machine shop could easily mill one matched to the other shock's specs or, a mechanic could probably cut something to fit and press it in.
* I no longer have the perch adjustment wrenches (my tool chest was stolen out of my moving truck). Any perch spanner wrench should work avail. at ECS for $20 and prob. cheaper elsewhere, otherwise the coilovers are set for about an inch to half an inch of wheel gap on my TT as pictured below
