So this car, has had some suspension setups in its life

1. OEM GT
2. GT shock absorbers with 50mm HR springs
3. Custom Bilstein PSS with HR custom springs
4. OEM MKV Gti suspension as it is today.

I wanted it to go a bit lower, so was thinking of getting back a set of HR springs for now. Yes it would be harsh, but I wouldnt take this to the track, I knew it was a not so politically correct setup, but hey, the absorbers have lived their life by now anyway. So for the last weeks I was in the look-out for some springs, and if nothing came up, I would buy some new ones . . .

Until today, that I went to another garage I have, to leave some Audi parts, and saw a HR box . . . Hmmmm...Could it be . . .



Well yes it could. I had totally forgotten the fact that I had not sold mine, and there they were . . . gave them a quick clean, and here they are lined up





So happy - and learned my lesson, to check for stock first - LOL

Looks awesome mate, nice and subtle mods. I've got the MKV GTi in black, got the same issue as you with the heater controls! paint flaked off revealing the white! so annoying and them control units aren't cheap. The ones I've looked at are £70 second hand.
