I'd really like to see some pics of a lowered 07.

Before and After if you have them.

I'm thinking about putting about a 1" drop on mine but I wanna hold off until I see it.


Also I hear a lot of people saying it is possible to have VW do the install at a dealership and this way you wont void the warranty.

The prices people keep quoting are all over the place to have this done.

If YOU actually had this done post the cost. If a friend of a friend of a cousin heard it could be done for 11k, dont bother.... I dont wanna hear it.

I can't say about the dealer install, but I have been pricing the mod. The reason for the variation in proce may be in what they are using. I saw a project on Vwvortex.com that did the mod to an 07 and it looked great. They used coil overs (I called the manufacturer they used and was told $1480 for parts, and I can have them installed for $150). Just changing the springs would be ~ $350 in parts.

would lowering it do any damage to the suspension at all in the long run??

Those of you who have lowered... can you seriously drive around your cities without ever bottoming out? I've bottomed out a couple times the way my car is now on driveways, curtain curbs and very rugged back-alleys.

thats why i ask. but for me out here air bags are just make more sense. i see a cop i pick it up, they leave i drop it. i guess it all depends on the install because i had no problems with mine. coil overs u have to get out jack up the car and still adjust all 4. to long for me.
