      Selling my suspension setup as I finally caved in and got some KWs. Been on the car for 30k miles and rides great. Factory MKVI Golf R dampers and 4 door specific VWRacing springs. Had them on my MKV SportWagen 2.0T. Still on the car at the moment. 425 obo?

      How do they ride and how much of an improvement on the handling did they make? What size of wheels/tires are on your car in the pics?

      Sent you a pm back.

      They ride softer than my wife's stock 08 GTi. But firm up nicely when pushing the car. To be honest it's hard to describe my car's handling because it has poly bushings, WALK kit and 28mm F/28.5mm R solid sway bars with Whiteline adjustable links. When I say there is absolutely zero body roll... I mean it. 3 wheeling into my driveway every day.

      Wheels are 18“ OZ Ultralaggera with 225/40/18 Pilot Super Sports.

      Bump suspension is off the car. I will be including the dust boots as well as front strut mounts as well.

      Car stance looks great. How much does this setup lower the ride compared to stock?
