Default Lowering springs

Would like to lower the gap a bit on my 09 turbo. Went with techarts on my S and liked the look and ride. Looking for a similar stance as well. Recommendations?

I'm doing Eibach's on my 09 TT next week, assuming weather cooperates. Will share photos once done, but may be a few weeks before I can nab photos

GMG springs will give just the right stance. I believe Eibach makes them for GMG to its specified specs.

I did Eibach a while ago. They look good, and along with the DSC the car was transformed. Plus it looks so much betterer.
You'll be stoked with either brand.

Thanks. Been running them for over 2 years. I love it. Just perfect stiffness and height while still very compliant.

Looks perfect. Spacers, too? And powder coat or Plastidip on the wheels?

^thanks guys. 7mm/14mm spacers. I was testing a removable coating from duplicolor which was great, but wheels are now powdercoated same color.

Will the GMG springs wear out the shocks prematurely? How much lower is the car with GMG and do you guy scrap a lot more now?

No, it will not wear the shocks prematurely as GMG took that into consideration. Scrape depends on your environment. Personally, I don't

Eibach just the perfect stance. Not to low like H&R, could not deal with scrapes and manholes.
