H&R Spring install on B6
« on: November 15, 2005, 08:49:50 PM »
We just finished the H&R Spring install on Al's (givebloodplayhockey) car.  I must say the car looks and drives amazing.  We did not get any pictures, but I am sure Al will take some later and post them.

On another note - I must say that I am very impressed with the APR software.  I am not a fan of automatic transmissions, but if I had to pick one the FSI 2.0T Automatic would be it.

HOLY CRAP!

On the way home I took it fairly easy. HOWEVER, afterwards I did take it out for a rip. The car sticks like snot on a blanket! The F-1's sure help!

Randy and Mark: THANKS! You guys are the best. I kow the install was a learning curve for all of us (remeber, left rear, right front)! The install was very clean, very professional. Everything is perfect. The car sits right where it should. It is a bit rougher but hey, that's to be expected and believe me, it's enjoyed! The car looks great with Steve's old wheels on it, perfect for the Reflex Silver car with graphite wheels and 27% tint.

My dig. camera is only a 3.1 MP so it kind of sucks and I'm HORRIBLE with posting pics. Maybe a member can help a brother out? ;-)

Again, KUDOS to Randy and Mark.

Congratulations on the change!  Having just installed my FK coilover set-up 3 weeks ago I can relate to the fun of a new suspension in what was a very floaty ride(my car that is)!

Enjoy!

That would be super! My camera is about as usful as a tub of yak boogers. Then again, it could be the operator!

We could meet up somewhere near your place for a couple pics. That would make it a ton easier for you. Let me know what you think! I would really appreciate it!

SOMEONE TAKE SOME PICS...

Sounds like the springs really made a difference. Can't wait to see how it looks.

I work at roughly Dry Creek and I-25 (just a little east)...do you want to come by here?  there is a fairly nice spot for photos below our parking lot.

Not far at all from me Ian. About a 10 minute drive. When would work for you? I can swing by at any time.
