I lowered my GTI and regret it. Not touching the GSW unless I keep it long enough for the stock suspension to wear out, and then Id go with a comfort setting on a decent set of coilovers. The VWR springs on the GTI are harsh.

I think the GSW suspension is limited enough stock. I don't want to change it in my car, but if I did I'd raise it.

Good to see (sort of). From time to time, I'm tempted to lower my GTI just a hair. But I don't want to ruin what I currently feel is a perfect ride and just about as firm as I think I can appreciate.

What springs did you install that you regret?

Thanks,

Scott

Installed new fuel filter for my sis-in-laws 15. Was surprised the filter actually had a 2017 date on it. They actually replaced it when she bought it last May. Shocked!

Yesterday, actually. We were out of coffee so I took it out for a ride in our first real snow this year and was really impressed. Much better than our old B5.5 Passat. Had absolutely no problems while running the DSG in manual mode. I was able to get around a several cars spinning and stuck on a couple of hills. Running Conti Pure Contact DSW 205-55/16 @ 40 PSI.

What do you mean by limited, Peter. Ours handles great. I enjoy losing BMWs on exit ramps...

Left out the word travel. I think it could use more. And I feel like it understeers more than my other VWs (the ones without rear sway bars). Might need a rear bar at some point, although I'm trying to leave this car alone.

It's tuned at least. But I monkeyed with the suspension on my MKVI and it took three tries to make it better than what it came with. So I'm driving this one as is for a while. To the extent I drive it at all.
