O.K. Nice Golf Neilo... Sure im only learning the ropes. You are right as text speak makes it difficult for others to read posts.

Can anyone reccomend a good brand of coilovers . Are FK. the best out there?

QUOTE (Neilo @ Apr 20 2011, 10:25 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>No worries.

There are lots of different coilovers available for your bora, from budget to premium brands.
I would say FK would be low to mid range. I had kw v3's on my last car which were very good but stiff, Shane had koni's
on his bora and were very comfortable.

I Might shop around and see what the konis are like . Coilovers will effect handling and it may be worth a bit of research in other threads. I would prefer to have the bit of comfort . Thanks again for the advice and keep up the good work.

Thanks A.Z the same could be said for my bora , But I threw up a picture for the introduction. I have heard of the brand Apex before. Yeah it seems like a toss up between , budget and comfort. I will go for mid range ones , something easy to adjust also . I will keep you posted sure.

QUOTE (ShaunieVW @ Apr 20 2011, 10:47 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>If your going mid range get the Koni 1150's, If budget get JOM's, they outshine at everything with comparing them to other budget brands such as FK's, Raceland and the god awful V-maxx, I think mid range is good enough for your every day enthusiast, Higher end is more for handling set up IMO, for comfort its definitely mid range all the way, Best of luck, new wheels and lows and your on a good road with that colour


Shaunie your a star
. Cant wait to drop her down a notch , Im sure ill chat to ya again , No doubt.

QUOTE (VRSJim @ Apr 22 2011, 10:39 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Ya its a great bus, just starting to get things done with it now plans for the next month or so is alloys painted black, respray front and rear bumpers and the trim on them and lower it a little on some coilovers.

Lots of spraying for the skoda so . Nice weather for it . Black rims will look well . will you spray the trim yourself or get someone to do it . What type coilovers are you thinking of getting. will you go for any of the ones mentioned above?
