Has anyone figured out the part numbers for OEM sport spring for the Sportwagen? Not sure they were sold in CA that way but they were sold in Europe.

Just to add my 0.02 cents, having had the GTI front springs I wasn't very impressed with their handling on the TDI.

With conversations with spring experts, my conclusion is that the GTI front springs are not meant for the weight of the TDI engine, spring ratio will be wrong.

Part numbers are fine but the actual spring rates would be a better indication of fitment. VW offers very different parts for a simple last letter change of a part number.

I would urge patience before buying GTI springs and suggest that the different part number for the Highline is more than just a "rebranded GTI front spring".

I would be very interested in seeing a picture of highline TDI springs next to standard TDI springs though.

Not a spring expert or a suspension expert so I'll ask; what is there to gain with sport springs over the non sport springs besides a slightly more capable setup?

My question stems from basics, isn't the aftermarket options more capable then OEM options?
