Pretty sure that will feel really tight to drive after the suspension refresh

Hopefully! AP are generally a nice setup for normal day to day use, just that little bit stiffer for more enthusiastic driving but still comfortable enough to get along with when just driving normally (like 98% of the time). My existing ones have just gone a bit soft and rolly, pretty sure it's them anyway, as everything else has been uprated and stiffened.

What's the ride like on the polybushes? My rear wishbone bushes are shot and was thinking to either replace them with poly items or Mk1 TT solid bushes (mk4 golf v6). Roads around here are rough

I didn't notice a huge difference on the rear ones if I'm honest. At that point they should just have a longer life. Mine have been in 6 years and still look to be in pretty good shape. If you go Powerflex just make sure you get purple not black.

Black are firmer again and track use only ideally, purple are slightly more forgiving.

Ah right, I actually have the Ibiza Cupra donut ones there, they're a good choice. The rears I have are the rear axle beam.
