I'll keep you posted. I bought the sport springs last week and I just need to get them installed. I'll get that done when I have time in about a week to two weeks.

I understand that, but I was just curious if anyone has tried any of them.

The main reason probably to stay with aftermarket and not dealer performance parts is the price. I personally would rather have the peace of mind at least until my warranty is over.... but that's just me



to each his own...

I fully intend to get factory performance springs when budget and priorities permit. I want VW springs because they're so sensitive about the drivetrain warranty and the springs would be such a pain to swap out before service. (Not that I would do that)

Or instead of changing them out everytime, find a mod-friendly dealer.

I purchased the factory performance exhaust and installed it myself, it might cost more but it does not void my warranty and it is backed up buy VW.
Great product lighter in weight and sounds great just right when driving on the highway doing 80 miles per hour.

'ello. I just got my sport springs from the dealer and I haven't had them put in yet. Hopefully will do so in about a week or maybe two.

If anyone is wondering what brand the springs are they are: Eibach Federn.
