Wow. Looks like @bonelorry has some competition in the detailing stakes.

If you do decide to work on a few forum cars I'm sure you'll have plenty of requests. Shame I'm up north!

I'll be interested to hear which coilies you go for too. I'm kind of at that point myself - I rarely drive it hard and I'd like to get it sitting a bit better than it does on H&R springs.

I've defiantly fell in love with the car again after my wobbler before Christmas.

I will probably go with either AP/ST/H&R coilovers, not fussed about spending £1,000+ on fully adjustable track orientated coilovers as I will probably never track it....perhaps a cheaper dedicated track car is on the way!?

I would happily detail forum members cars when the weather picks up :happy2:

Yep, those coilovers are what I'm looking at myself. I'll maybe rule out AP as they apparently don't go as low as KW or ST. ST aren't that much cheaper than KW these days. When Weitec were what ST are now there was a bigger price gap. So the idea of having stainless bodies (KW) for a little more than ST makes sense to me. I'm hoping to hold on to the car for a good few years so longevity is important.

KW usually have a sale around April that lasts until June. Last year V1s were 600 odd quid. Everything I've read about V1s sounds right for me - decent drop and a nice ride. They might be valved a little on the soft side for track use, but like you I'm not taking the car in that direction, so they sound ideal.

I had Weitecs on a mk4 and they were a decent ride even all the way down. Better than a Koni shock and spring kit I had on before in fact. I expect the same or better from V1s on the mk5!

If I'm ever down south and you're doing detailing I'll give you a shout
