He guys,

I just wanted to share my polo, it has recently been lowered on Eibach Prostreet coilovers and then got me some Superturismo's

Looks awesome that mate! Been a long time fan of the Superturismos and they suit the 6R really well :)

Thank you! I'm really into the look of the Superturismo's as well at the moment! :-D

Here are 2 rolling shots we took yesterday;

What kit did you need to fit your coilovers? Was wondering if I'd be able to do it just with a jack and axle stand or if I'd need to use a ramp? I'm hoping it's not too difficult I got told the newer polos are a bit of a pain to get the shocks off

"Eibach Prostreet coilovers"

Fitting coilovers can be done on axle stands of course :) If the new polo's have a Macpherson struts at the front then you undo the 3-4 bolts holding the strut on (Found in the engine bay under the honeycomb cover) then when your cars jacked up take the wheel off, undo the bolt through the strut and hub, jobs a gooden pull out the strut, swap all needed parts over and replace with coilover (At correct height before fitting of course). As for the rears, changing the spring are easy (If its a fixed axle, most vw's are) Then undo the damper to axle bolt, then jack up the car and the spring should fall out, take all boot trims out and undo the top of damper, then fit the new coilover kit, swopping all rubbers, making sure they are greased up to increase life. Make sure they are adjusted before putting them on. Saves alot of time messing around.

Hope this helped,

Sorry for jacking your thread!!

Yeah they actually are quite a pain to do, I did mine on a lift and took out the complete spindle, as it was easier fitting the coilovers on the workbench with a vise and airtools.

and done:

But it is certainly possible to mount them with the car on jackstand :thumbsup:

Edit:

np Liam, thanks for explaining, as English is not my first language I have to lookup words like vise and spindle etc. LOL

Thanks!

I'm looking into a foil for the roof that matches the color of the wheels, and I'm contemplating on getting a Whiteline rear arb

these mk8s really do suit a motorsport style wheel, love to see one on a set of rota slipstreams

I've got a mk8 and planning on getting my coilovers in the next few weeks, as far as you know are there any restrictions on how low you can go? (in regards to catching ARB drop links) etc?

I'm wanting to slam mine on some x5 wheels, they're 18's but should look mint if i get it sat right

Did you do any modifications to get the Eibach coilovers to go that low or is that just how low it goes without mods???
