    We're considering getting a toy car to putter around in (and with) and basically we've got it down to one of these: Alfa Romeo Spyder (any vintage) Fiat Spyder (any vintage) Austin Healey Bug Eye Sprite Triumph TR4 or TR6 MG A MG B (but pre-big bumpers and smog crap) I know that's a...

    Vogtland Sport or H&R Sport W/ Bilstein Sports 6512, 6542 - Early perch fit on 6512? I have searched for days and have found lots of information that seems most is from 2004-2008. So I am asking for more specific and up to date experiences and knowledge! Thanks. I have an 11/99 2000 model...
  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Are the front's only hydraulic, using only oil to dampen and rebound? How would you know if an "oil" damper was still good? Are the rears hydraulic and gas assisted? Reason why I ask is because I stumbled upon a pretty good deal. Owner says shocks might be blown in the front because they don't...

  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 1998 1.8t Looking to replace all control arms and suspension I have 16" OEM alloys, currently not lowered and not interested in lowering. 1" wouldn't kill me, but any more than that and I'll have to slow down on our bad roads, so I don't want that! I like taut suspension but don't...

  9. Wheel and Tire Forum
    Hey guys, Does anyone know if audi A4 sports (17x7.5", 45mm offset I believe) w/ 235/45 tires will fit on a B5 wagon without spacers? I'm a little worried I'll be pushing the clearance too tight, would something like 5mm spacers on the front and 10mm on the rears be advisable? Thanks.

    I initially had H&R Sports on my 4Motion wagon but I took them off. I was looking for a factory 1BE drop with corresponding stiffness. H&R drop was ridiculous. Right now the car has almost perfect GT stiffness with Bilstein Sports, but it is on stilts! Any other options for the old girl...
