Any advice on stance coil over kit??
Thanks Lee

Decent👍 I've had the stance kit on for about 8 months or so? I thought it the best 'bang for buck' budget set out there. If I could have afforded it at the time, and they were available (!) I probably would look at the BC racing kit?

[mention]Stedlocks [/mention] totally agree, seem good value for money, fitted a set to a T5 few weeks back, customer was over the moon. Looks similar quality on the caddy kit. Hitting order now. Thanks for the reply

[mention]Ripley55 [/mention] yes more than lightly on the seats fitted to the rear, two kids makes them a near must. Going to re carpet it, it’s not the best job. Cant believe how good they are on fuel also.. will be going everywhere in it.

Is it a 1.6tdi? And if it is, has it had the 'emissions fix' ?

If yes to both, get it rolled back and then remapped......fuel economy is even better, and you can get around 150brake hp safely.....which is plenty!

[mention]Stedlocks [/mention] yes just the 1.6, the history of the vehicle is unknown atm, it could do with a little more go, only had it a few weeks but a map and software update (if needed) is on the cards

I can't find the link now, as im a bit drunk, but you can check on the vw website if its had the 'fix' or not....... If it has, get it 'rolled back' First, then map it....you will be amazed.
Mine went from rubbish, to standard spec 102 bhp, to 150bhp........ Well worth doing. Matt at dubunit is who I would go to now.

Had tint guy in, doing a customers car, was rude not to ask him to do the fronts and rears on the caddy at the same time Image

[mention]Ripley55 [/mention] it’s dark smoke, it’s probably to dark for the law, not sure on the % light transparency, but the light tint didn’t cut the mustard.... made a massive difference, keeps the sun out too, keep the dogs cool.

Down but not out.... Fitted stance kit yesterday. Not a bad quality kit, drives well on them. Can’t work out why a quick set of instructions would hurt Image maybe someone torque setting etc...

Was shocked the level of shoddy repairs on the van tho... left and right ball joint on the wrong side, track rod end threads stripped and worst of all the hub was cracked, only held on by a fannies hair and the bolt Image

Even worse I was driving about in it like that...
