I'm putting my 18's on next week & suspension is next up, it won't be coilovers cos I'm on a budget for this one so it will just be a spring/damper combo. I know coilovers are the way to go but it's just not an option.

Any thoughts on the Koni Sports, and have you any idea on price & best place to deal?

Have you come across any other good reviews of particular spring/damper combos for the Mk 4 TDI?
Koni dampers & Eibach springs seem to be popular on almost everything. Do H&R do spring/damper combo's? They would be at the top end of the market though.

I was told to stay well clear of GMAX and Avo, heard mixed reports on Spax, and good reports on FK Automotive. They use Koni dampers in some of their kits and seem to be fairly reasonable. Apparently they use the exact same damper in one of their budget kits that they use in one of their top end kits.

Any opinions on Bilsteins?

Cheers for any advice.

@ Thos
Do you or did you not have Koni Sports on your Golf. I'm sure I remember reading where you said you had to get the suspension sorted to reduce wheel hop after you got the remap???

Yep, I've got Koni Sports with Eibach springs, does the job.

I got the springs from Otto in Ranelagh, and the shocks from Awesome GTI. Cant remember how much it was at all.

I fitted some bilstein B4 sports shocks and eibach springs to my gti and I can highly recommend this combo - add in a neuspeed rear arb and the handling is vastly improved with no real degradation of the ride - I'm running 18's as well. All in it's a very cost effective updgrade - shocks + springs cost me around €400 delivered from awesome gti and arb cost around €250 delivered.
