Acceleration everytime i mod it i get great speed for a week or so then i get used to it im more for acceleration than top speed i really wanna peel it at the lights, but at the mo everytime i floor the car in second and first gear the wheels just spin
I am experiencing similar probs. I am not as heavily modded as Baz, i only have a chip, intake and Eibach lowering springs (yes standard 'sports' shocks', but i am having a mare putting that power down!
I too wish to upgrade the suspension and i noticed Koni shocks mentioned. I have also been advised Bilstein b4 (?) shorten travel thingies. In addition i belive that the top bearing mounts to the shocks are knockered (clonking going round corners).
So my question, coil overs aside, what is the best shock to go with the VW/Eibach lowering springs in order to retain a reasonable ride and increase grip (part # if poss)
The top bearing mounts, are they seperate items, like the Mk2's, and can i buy uprated versions and where from?

My car is quite well modded at the mo as u can see in my sig. what can i do next for more speed ??
Seeing as you are 4bar already, your best bet is to strip out the interior of the car (its all about weight) and lob some Millers Octane booster in your tank. LSD will not give you more power but will allow you to use what you have more effectivley.
