    I took it there because when I had the springs installed the Mk7 had only been out a month or two - and Eibach had told me I was the second person to buy them. I figured VW Would have a better understanding of disassembling my car and installing the new springs.

    Springs can affect warranty, although you'd be unlucky.

    If a modification that you make renders the vehicle unroadworthy (ie too low), or a part fails that can be attributed to the modification, then the manufacturer is within their rights to deny a warranty claim. Depending on the dealer you get, they can be more or less difficult to deal with on such matters.

    Changing springs alone, especially on a car without active dampers, shouldn't be an issue - as long as everything's fitted properly. But that's not written in stone.

    Agreed, I'd say you'd be pretty much voiding anything suspension related, but they're not big ticket items in the overall scheme of things (IMO). I'm assuming this car has active dampers though.

    Will be interested to hear an ongoing review of ride quality compared to stock. I am keen to consider a small drop myself, but have no interest in stuffing up the Mk7 ride quality.

    How much camber did this induce? And how much more sunken do the stock rims sit?
    Thanks

    Dutch,

    I'd say ride quality is really not affected overall. If you say hit a pothole you do feel that its a little firmer, But its by no means transformed the car into a spine jarring ride. It handles better and IMO looks heaps better too.

    Anyone else who has dropped there car have any thoughts on ride quality?

    I think it's a perfect balance of comfort and handling . . . I used to say the same as thing for my XR5T Focus. It feels very similar, just not as much power.

    I had it done in Campbelltown (Paul Wakeling VW). Camber is a bit more negative than standard, but it looks good.

    Lower spring for MK7 TSI

    Hi anyone know front and rear axle weight for MK7 Tsi?
    I try to buy Eibach spring for my Tsi. but there are two part no.
    One is 'E10-15-021-01-22' (suitable for vehicles with front axle weights up to 985kg and rear axle weights to 1000kg.) The other is 'E10-15-021-03-22' (suitable for vehicles with front axle weights up to 985kg and rear axle weights to 900kg.)

    Do you know which one is suitable for MK7 TSI?

    Part 01 is for multi-link rear axle, part 03 is for beam rear axle; my understanding is all Australian Golfs have the multi-link rear axle? I believe only sub-90kw models in other parts of the world carry the beam rear axle.
