Congrats and welcome to M1R Matt. I'm in for some pics, especially pics of an 8k suspension. Curious to see what you have hiding under there.

Re: Matts 03 Dsg Mach 1

Two friends of the previous owner told me about the suspension of the car after i bought it i havent had a chance to get it on the lift yet because i havent gotten tags on the car yet hopefully getting them tomorrow so friday i plan on seeing whats under there. i can see adjustments on the front strut for adjusting ride height also has it on rear. I doubt it has this kit the prev owner stated.

Welcome,
In for pics of the wheel and tire combo.
I also have a DSG and am debating on a more street oriented wheel and tire setup.

Re: Matts 03 Dsg Mach 1

Got tags on the car friday and drove it to work so i found the car has a tubular k member and lower control arms on the front. and has aftermarket lower arms on rear. No names on the suspension components so dont know what brand the stuff is. Uploading all the pics to photo bucket then going to put on here.

Re: Matts 03 Dsg Mach 1

If you used photobucket, it provides pre-formatted links with IMG tags. Just copy and paste it here.

Re: Matts 03 Dsg Mach 1

Looks like a UPR K-Member, A-Arms and coil over setup with Eibach (sp) sway bars front and rear. After market lower control arms as well, not sure the brand. Not an 8,000.00 setup but well on your way to making it a Turbo car.

You should consider swapping out the subframe connectors for some from Maximum Motorsports, they are well worth the effort!

Re: Matts 03 Dsg Mach 1

Heya. Can you weigh your Mach 1 with nothing in it and a mostly full tank
Need to know how much weight you saved with that stuff. My Mach weighed 3420 LBS.
