Who is running Coilovers? (not just KW HAS)

Post by G30001 » Fri Feb 08, 2019 2:43 pm

Hi

I have one of the few RS4's without DRC but at 50K the shocks are obviously past their best and with a trip to North Wales in May (and the Evo Triangle) I looking to swap them out for some full coilovers.

Now the options are usual KW or Bilstien's ranging from £1,100 through £2,300 depending on the level of adjust-ability required (given it is road car I want to set and forget) so was wondering if anyone in the South East (preferably London/Kent/Essex/Surrey) that is running any of the above, what they think and if I could maybe come meet to see what I think?

I have searched here and google but only get infor on KW HAS as most have DRC.

there are also Ohlins R&T just released but they are £3K and doubt anyone has them yet.

Thanks for the reply.

Could you elaborate a bit and describe the biggest difference you noticed?

Do you know who has Ohlins fitted? Could you PM me as I would like to ask their feedback?

Are they in the UK?

The diffrence i noticed from my DRC car and the Ohlins car is that with the coilovers the car is more supple when driving slow and smooth, more comfortable than comfort on the drc, it swallows the bumps much more easy. When you load it up it's still nice and not hard, but its flat trough corners. I know that Mando188 on Instagram has them, Seen some UK people installed them to. Try asking on Audi-Sport.net and on the Facebook group RS4 Owners :)
