If your replacing the whole coilover the basic damper kit will fit on fine. £400 from TDI . Maybe the reason why they leaked was that they were set too low maybe and constant bottoming out cause the leak.

so TDI kit will fit onto my car fine even tho iv got after market top mount / pillow mount (wot every they) r fitted for the current coilovers

yeah think i might set it a bit higher this time

I tried to get my hands on a set of tein coilovers a couple of weeks ago and Mark at TDi told me there wre non in the country and there would be aout o 4 month wait for them ( although this was for the flex kit so you might be ok with the others)

Just thought i'd let you know.

dunno about Uk suppliers i got mine from the local tuning shop in Dublin. You might get them cheaper than that in the UK, thats how much i paid in pricey Dublin(16th most expensive capital in the World!!)

Well it might be worth just raising ur car up a bit then get the damage shock fixed. Most after market ones are serviceable so this maybe a better option for you to look into

first of all, the teins will just bolt up. I think the pillow mounts they come with will be fine. However they will be really, really soft. Like softer than standard.. yuck! If i was you, i'd look at a set of Buddy club N+ damper... they have those in england right? Either get a set of those or tein flex.. super street are also way, way too soft.

Also, d2's a the worst coil overs ever made. How do i know this? I work in the aftermarket parts industry. D2's, K Sports, G4's HDS, they're all utter crap. Get teins, buddy clubs, or some other Japanese brand of coilovers

Buy a quality set of coilovers now, so you don't have the replace them agian in only 6 months.
