We’ve all been there: you want the look, you want the performance but sadly your wages are saying otherwise. Well, help is on hand from the good folk at Heritage Parts Centre.

They’ve just taken stock of these brand new coilover suspension kits from SSP. Manufactured in a TUV approved factory who produce for many vehicle manufacturers, they promise to do all of the above, but at a price that is a little kinder to your bank balance.

If you drive a Mk1, Mk2 or Mk3 Golf or T4, T5 and T6 (including the T32 version) read on.

Each coilover is based around a galvanised steel body and features gold adjusters and grey springs. For T4 and T5 applications where the spring is separate the shock absorbers are finished in a dark blue powder coat with black OE style dust covers. Depending on adjustment, ride height can be set between 40mm and 70mm lower than standard.

Having spent many months testing these on staff cars, Heritage stress that ride comfort is beyond expectation for a product traditionally sold at this price making them perfect if you have passengers or partners who are a little sceptical when it comes to the benefits of modified cars!

Of course you are itching to know how much these beauties will set you back, so here it is… £304.95 for T4, £359.95 for Golf and £549.95 for T5/T6 Transporter. That’s a decent bounce (or lack of) for your buck in our book.
