    Default Spoons Bilstein Dampers

    Hi all...

    One Day before the Irmscher 2007 Road Trip I arranged for the VXRD to have custom Bilstein Dampers fitted by 888 (VXR Performance Center).

    And here they are.... very very good setup, helped me get round the Nurburgring very quickly indeed.

    From what I hear they got a thorough testing. They probably saved your life matey, not to mention your newly straightened car!

    Well dont believe all that you hear

    The dampers are very good indeed. The story you heard was from the third lap of the Nurburgring when the VXRD's tyres were getting slightly hot... - It wasnt anything to do with the dampers, I can assure you.

    I will go into it in more detail once some of the other pics are up...

    However, yes the VXRD did get a thorough 'testing'
