M030 w/ the ride height adjustable konis is pretty decent with a good alignment IMO, I had that on my S2, but last winter I did Ground Control coilovers on the front w/ 350# springs. It's quite a...

16" tire sizes (245/45's) seem to be less common, I think 17's are the 'wave of the future'.

I helped instruct at a novice auto-x school on Saturday, the guys I was working with had pretty rough cars, -soft suspension, exhaust leaks and some smoke. After 8 rides or so, I started feeling...

Everybody over at the VWvortex forums talks about how great it is to upgrade to 944 door handles, the general consensus seem to be that it's a great upgrade over the vw's. I'd stick w/ Porsche...

A stock '86 is pretty soft (I had one for a few years), upgrading to adjustable yellow konis helps quite a bit by itself. I upgraded my '89 S2 to the 25.5 rears, and it's about right for street, - I...

I'd change the DME relay and see that helps. In my experience they eventually fail, so if not now, it will fail later. The last one I bougth was about $25 from the dealer ($50 from another dealer),...

On my '89 S2, the needle bearings inside the first gear had started to stick and rough up the surfaces. It was hard to get into first, and if I turned it off while still in first it would be hard to...

Those falken 615s come in 225/50/16 now (reportedly) for about $108 ea. 225/50 on all corners is not bad at all. I'd also be tempted to try Hankook R-S2 Z212, one of the few newer tires to come in...

The part numbers from Quaife for an audi a4 rear, and several 4k front diffs are the same as the part # for 944s. So it's safe to assume they're pretty similar. Some of those had lockable diffs,...

I'm told even the earlier lsd units will fit in an S2 (or other) gearbox. I finally found a used one, 944 and 917 part numbers. They're not easy to find either, but there are some out there.

You shouldn't be bottoming out, my guess is your shocks are shot. Coilovers are too stiff IMO for a street car, unless you are comfortable with a race-car like ride. If you want a comfortable...

I would suspect a bad connection. Get some electrical cleaner spray, and clean every connector you can find (while making sure they're tight.
