    Cheers mate! - it doesn't usually look that tidy

    has anyone ever bought these kits off ebay? if so are they any good?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FEBI-SUSPE...3D263008721266

    Or do I get mine blasted and painted? then install something like R32 or TT bushes?

    I would think Febi would be OEM?

    The guy that sells them is on the Golf GTI forum. If you join and pm him, you'll get 5% off. Not a great deal but every little helps!

    Ahhh yes - it was parked up on a stand with no front end installed... my Mum isn't best pleased with the appearance, I suggested a cover, but she's not keen.

    Hopefully once I can get rolling again it won't be too long before its mobile again.

    Have you ever purchased front suspension arms for that Corrado you're building in the loft? - I cant make up my mind... blast and paint the originals and use R32 bushes or just replace the lot... hmmmm

    Personally I would get your OE Arms blasted and powder coated with R32 rear and standard front bushes - Lemforder are better quality replacements for Bushes than Febi in my opinion.

    Cheers Ian.

    I guess the R32 rears just tighten it up a bit more? does anyone know if they are still available from the dealer? Would there be any benefit to using them in the front as well? OE look and slightly stiffer? or are they too much?

    There's no voids I the R32 bushes so theres less deflection making geometry remains more stable
