Coilover Suspension for the 500

I am thinking of some fairly serious suspension mods to my 500 1.4 Sport. Not just springs, but springs and dampers. Has anyone here tried one of the coilover kits for the 500 - KW, Eibach, Spax or whatever? And if so, are you pleased? Was the kit well priced and good quality? And how much did you pay for fitting?

Many thanks

John

Of the coilovers you mention, KW are super quality and very popular with the VW fans. The beauty of coilovers is the ability to change the ride height almost infinately.
