    I don't have 18's but I do have the springs. I think they're a good deal. I didn't buy any shocks though and they've held up fine. It's a rough ride, though, let me tell you.

    We have the FK Springs available for the B5, they are offered in (2) variations. A 40/35mm set and a 60/40 mm set, both are currently in stock for the sedan and can be found here on the website:

    FK springs and astock shocks experineces anyone?
    I know theres a great price on the springs but not on shocks.... I would really just like to stiffin up the car on the curves and long bumps (that make all four wheel lift) and if the car gets a little lower in the process, I won't argue

    I reread what I wrote after and was going to change it but decided not to. The ride isn't that bad. It is stiffer than stock obviously but not too bad. I live in Quebec where the roads are shit so I'm going over bumps all the time in my car and maybe I just feel it more.

    I'm guessing in PA the roads are nice and smooth so you won't have any problems.

    18x8 paired with bilstein sports. Ride is good , and it is low enough that your genitals float to your chest when a bump in the road comes out of nowhereBest lowering springs by far

    where did you get your chrome weather stripping? I have been looking all over for that, on my B5.

    That really makes me want a B5.5, all those chrome accents are nice.
