Hey guys! Coilover help!
« on: March 25, 2014, 01:36:36 AM »
After waiting almost two years for my B&G coilovers and received nothing, I need help choosing another brand of coilovers similar to the B&Gs. My mk4 suspension needs to be replaced as soon as possible, I will really apreciate y'all's help

Why is it taking so long to get them?
Or is it the mjm fiasco?

PM stephanoGLI. He just received a new set of B&G's for his mkiv GLI so he may know a source that has them in stock.


You can also look into BC Racing coils.

Most of us drive slow Volkswagens so the main function they serve is to drive around town and look pretty.

Yeah I don't think that I'm going to receive anything, I was played. As soon as I saw stephanoGLI post I looked into that source. I called but they told me  that they are out of stock for now, they don't have an eta for now. I have been looking at bc coilovers but still haven't figured out how low they can go, do you know?

BC Coilovers can go pretty low, and if you want you can order their BC Racing BR "Extreme Low" to go even lower but I think the regular BR Type is just fine  :like:

I don't know the exact measurements. We installed a set on Micvin's Jetta Wagon and it was low enough to rub on stock wheels.

i've had no experience with them. that was the first google result. you should never wait years. if you put any money down, 30 days from the estimated delivery date is the max you should wait to receive the product, and even that is pushing it. most online shops simply drop ship from the distributor and have no actual stock.

$950 Shipped to your door. I don't have VW BC's in stock since I deal with a lot of Japanese vehicles and what not but I will drop ship them straight from BC like was said above :)

The Extreme Low was not offered for the MKIV. It is MKV+

I think Kelly made it to where you had to file it with your bank and file a charge back. Unless you did that he wouldn't be refunding anything since he lost all records. I spoke to him when setting up my vendor account with him!

do alf and i get a kick back for this advertising you're doing in our forum?  :hsugh:  :P  :-*

flushstance does show the extreme low option available for order for the mkiv, but who knows if that is accurate.

I was trying to get my refund but like everybody else trying to contact them is difficult. When I finally got a hold of them I told them I want my money back! They said it's too late, we can only give you credit. I don't want the credit, I no longer want to be involved with them.

I checked really briefly on my phone. I'm pretty sure they have the extreme low for every car. Just one of the sites I checked didn't show for MKIV.

Definitely go see wetwithwaterwings and Alf for install. Awesome rates and great work. I think we will be doing a timing belt clinic at his shop sometime here soon. :P
