I was thinking of getting some coilovers, looking at FK Highsports or the Konisports.

I no the konisports have adjustable dampers but do you really need them or is the setting on the highsports ok.

Just wondering if i need to spend the extra money.

Does anyone have any experience or opinion on this?

I've had the highsports before, i rated them.. The damping setting was fine, i think it depends on what kind of driver you are and if your after more go than show.

I've just bought my second set of Highsports today in fact! See R1GTI , he will sort you out a good price.

I've got the Konigsports, they're set on medium-hard and they're quite stiff...gonna get them softened next time i'm in garage. I'm not sure that they're worth the extra money...but i like 'em!

Thanks for your comments. i dont get what you say about axel load and engine size though.

The FK's are rated on wieght, the larger the engine, the heavier the axle load will be.

So springs and dampers for a GTi would not support the wieght of a TDi engine etc....
