    I have some new sofsports springs (never installed) that were for my 2000 1.8T. Will these springs work on a 2003 wagon with the 2.8? I can't get to the neuspeed website and do the comparision and figured I'd ask. If I can't use these springs then I'll just sell them for a good price. Thank you.

    I'm looking for pics and actualy ride heights of Neuspeed SOFsport springs the .75 lowering ones, I want to figure out what my car will look like with these I've only been able to find one pic and it was at a bad angle I couldn't really tell.

    So, after months of having Vogtland springs and not having the time to put them on, I finally got my car in and had them thrown on...and love both the additional drop and the ride. I'm posting this up due to the fact I've always wanted comparison shots in order to help me make a decision...

    I'm a proud, relatively new owner of a 98 B5. First order of business in my opinion mods wise is going to have to be the suspension. I've already decided on Koni's for shocks, just a toss up between the 1" and 1.5" drops. For practicality I know the 1" is probably the way to go, but without...

    Done lots of searching and reading but still can't come to a conlcusion. Pretty sure I'm going to do 3/4 to 1 turn up front since most folks agree this is sporty yet still reasonably comfortable. But it seems like people are all over the place on the rears, I've seen recommendations for...

    As I have been trying to find the best spring/shock combination for my '02 GLS I've read a lot and solicited advice from a great many people to try to come up with what springs and shocks to buy to get just the right setup. After all of the research I decided that the Neuspeed SofSport springs...

    I would like to know what drop you got. I have Koni's with H&R OE Sports and got .75" front and with a full tank of gas, 1.2" in the back. I think Koni's perches kept the front from dropping to H&R's advertised 1.4" and would like to know if this happened with your springs. Thanks for any help!

    I have the Sofsports ready to go into my 99 B5 with 56K miles. I am sure the stock shocks will need replacing soon and should be done when I put in the springs. I have had bilsteins on my volvo 850 and they were great. I have also had KYBs on my previous jetta GLI (1984). Now that I am a...

    Folks, I need an opinion and search seems to be working screwy (or not at all) How stiff will Neuspeed SofSports be vs Eibach Pro Kit? I'm fine with the .75 inch vs 1.2 inch drop. I read somewhere that the Sofsports were as stiff as the Neuspeed Sports, just less drop. So, how much stiffer...

    for 6 months now, and I handles great (if there's no bump in the road), but the ride on some days drives me F$&*ING insane! What's wrong? Anything? Or just me? I had an RX-7 before this car and so I know how sports car suspensions feel, but I don't know if this is in my head or what!

    First of all, IN-'f-ing'-CREDIBLE difference!!! Yes I feel the bumps a little more...okay, considerably more - but it's not like I could roll over a dime and tell you what side was up or anyting like that. Handling - completely different car. In fact, I was thinking about taking the Passat...

    Has anybody used Cable chains on a lowered Passat with 17s, with any success?
