Golf 7 1.0 TSI - Lowering Questions

Post by Moodley1TSI » Thu Jun 13, 2019 9:46 am

Hi Guys,

I just bought my G7 1.0 TSI and I want to lower the suspension.

What options do I have to lower the car?
What brand of springs/coilovers can i use?
Will the GTI lowering springs fit on my vehicle?

I'm in cape town, so does anyone know any experts i could speak to in cape town?

Thanks a mil

Vw sells a set of coil springs made by Eibach that is Vw approved and comes with 1 year warranty don't know about the costs as each dealer asks a different price for it. But this would likely be your cheapest option. But if you own a golf 7 I am assuming you are not to worried about doing things cheap :smile:

Cheapest option is Eibach, some few extra Madibas will get you HnR, or Koni

For what it's worth, know what you are getting into if it's a daily drive, dropped my golf with a set of H&R and it was a real pain, rubbing over big bumps, scraping the front on people's driveways etc. Yes, looked good, but made day to day driving irritating.
Anyone need VCDS coding?
