Please don't yell at me....I have run several searches -

But how much do the VW Eibach kits actually lower the car in inches?

Do you think 1.5 inches is enough to get this Passat lowered enough for some 17" RS4's? Or am I gonna gave to go more aggressive with some 18's?

Sheesh - what a rough ride that would be.

I called VW and asked this question and they told me 1.5". But when I talked to Eibach, they said the Pro kit was the same thing and would give 1.2" drop. So who knows...

One thing is for sure - I am going to have to lose those mud-guards because when it's lowered those things are gonna be scraping all over the place.

The V6 Eibachs lower 1.2". The 1.8T B5 lowers 1.5". The 1.8T B5.5 lowers 1.2".
