Hi guys
So I have been on and off this site for a while. I live and drive in Ireland where the roads are s#-) and I want to lower the front of my car only by 15mm. I have an 2005 b5.5 passat 1.9 tdi. It is Base model with a/c and alloy wheels. She is a saloon with a 5 speed manual. Just wanted to know is there factory springs with a 15mm drop or do I need aftermarket ones. Thanks for any responses.

Hello to Ireland from Australia!

I did a lot of research on springs for my B6 3.2L V6 Passat before deciding to buy a set of Eibach sports springs which I ordered online from Germany. These lowered the car by around 15-20mm which is what I wanted to achieve. My main objective was a firmer sports spring that would also deliver a mild lowering. I decided not to use H&R springs which lower approx. 40mm - which I think is too much.
Lowered, firmer springs aren't much use without better shocks and I installed Koni gas sports yellow shock absorbers.
