    Hi guys new to the page so not sure if this thread has been done yet. But has anyone any advice on coilovers for the mk3 Leon I can't find them online anywhere. Just checking to see if there's another car model that has the same fitment or anything. Thanks in advance for any replies. :)

    Did you have a kit or budget in mind?

    Cheers for the replays... Damien don't really have a budget in mind anything under 500 really it's a brand new car so defiantly will be something half decent and I want it quite low . Have you anything on that site that comes under 500?

    We have the AP kit at £476 delivered, we just need to know front strut size, engine size and weather you have independent or torsion beam rear suspension.

    No problem.

    We also have some cheaper options starting from around £250 as well.

    I dont think you can put those two words together, 500 & half decent. You wanna be spending a bit more than that imo but up to you, i'd be pushing the boat out for some KW's.

    What you really want are these bad boi's! lol http://www.awesomegti.com/car/seat/leon-mk3/volkswagen-racing-race-4-way-remote-coilover-kit

    ...you can spread the cost, or get yourself another leon entirely for the same monthly price :)

    Totally agree! £500 will no doubt make it nice and low and look good but will ruin the ride and handling on anything other than a smooth road of which there are few in this country. The only coil overs I've had experience of have been kw or h&r both of which cost about double that . I eventually removed them as I got tired of the ride . Yes the handling was better on a track but I could drive quicker on an average bumpy country road with the stock setup .

    If I really save hard maybe I could afford it, but which corner should I put it on?

    To be honest for everyday road use the AP kit is a good option and if it's within your budget and a price that you're comfortable spending then why stretch yourself too far.

    Thanks again Damian when I get round to finding out the spec Al be sure to order with you cause you have been a good help. Does that price include delivery to Northern Ireland ?
