    Posting this on vwvortex, so I figured I'd post them here too...

    This is my 1995 VW Passat GLX after I replaced the stock Strut/Springs with some KW Variant 2 (adjustable rebound) Coilovers. It's about 45mm lower than stock, and later i'll dig up a "before" picture.

    Rides great, about 35% stiffer than stock, when it wasn't all blown out anyways... Eliminated virtually all body roll, and nose dive on braking/ nose rise on hard acceleration. Doesn't scrape on 95% driveways and when it does i think its the mudflaps i may remove... Makes rapid lane changes at 75+ extremely fast and stable. Haven't tracked it yet though, may tune height/rebound more...

    may consider this when i get it repainted, but money comes slowly for my car heh...

    The B4 body style kits are not made anymore, and usually have to get them from some random place in germany that still has one, and are prohibitively expensive. I've seen the front spoiler/bumper go for $650+, my lights are going to be $400, everything is rare and expensive for this car now.
