    Sorry I keep complaining, but a small car that only gets 4 more MPGs than a 2nd gen 4Runner, is wrong.

    You're wrong, and you should feel wrong.

    I'm not doing bags or coils, and there are no good spring sets out there yet. So no.

    I've been super impressed with just the OEM suspension on our Jetta.

    Is there something wrong with coils for these cars?

    Nice! I'm about to hit 100k miles on mine. Other than a bent suspension bit (wife hit a pothole) and a tail light receptacle that needed replacing (covered under warranty) it's only been preventative maintenance and tires.
    Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

    GTI and R stuff should work on the GSW. I have R springs in mine, direct fit.

    Not for the TDI rear suspension. It has a solid axle to make room for the AdBlue tank.

    Other than cost? I don't want to slam it to the ground, I still need to get around this city with its terrible roads.

    H&R has springs out, but they have very mixed reviews.

    I imagine a lot of it is in the strut you choose...

    Could mixed reviews be from scene kids that know nothing about suspension?
