Can you guys that have lowered your car post up pics and mention what suspension setuo you have. This is how my car looks at the moment

    Hi. I think I've got this ones http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...roduct=3871897. I bought them abroad so I'm not sure. They lower car 35mm front and rear. It's slightly stiffer but stil comfortable. Handling is much better. I was realy suprised how much diference they make.

    Bear in mind the standard sport suspension is lower anyways, id try some bigger wheels first on the car then see if you need to drop it at all?

    unless you want it really low

Should I get my friend's kits? or should I buy a new one online? I wanted my future passat to be cool just like what you have.
    the springs are $40 brand new... only the 2007 sport model comes lowered i believe

    Looking forward to seeing pics with the springs installed!
